Leek with Eggs

(Pirasa Kavurma)

Leek with Eggs
2-3 leeks, only green parts, thinly sliced, washed well, drained
6-7 pearl onions, peeled, cut in 4s
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 tbsp red pepper paste, mild
2 tbsp water
1 egg

Saute the leek and onion with olive oil for about 6-7 minutes until the colour turns, stirring occasionally. Add the pepper paste and water, stir. Don't make the hole for the egg between the leeks. Crack the egg over the leeks instead, cover. Turn the heat down to low. Cook until the white part of the egg is done. Don't overcook the egg!

Serve Leek with the Egg as a light lunch with Turkish Bread.

* If you like you can use the white part of the leek instead of pearl onion.
