  • 1 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1 Onion (Diced)
  • 2 Cloves Garlic (Minced)
  • 1 tsp Ground Cumin
  • 2-4 Handfuls of Spinach
  • 1 Handful Parsley
  • 2-4 tbsp Almond Milk
  • 1 tbsp Harissa Paste
  • 1 Green Bell Pepper (Sliced)
  • 150 grams Green Peas (Frozen)
  • 4 Eggs


  • Heat half of the coconut oil in a large frying pan, over medium heat, and sauté the onions and garlic for about 10 minutes, until soft.
  • Season with cumin and salt to taste, then cook for another 2 minutes. Next, transfer the onion into a food processor along with the spinach, parsley, almond milk and harissa paste. Season with freshly ground black pepper, and blend until smooth.
  • Using the same pan as earlier, heat the remaining oil and fry the pepper for about 5 minutes, until charred. Next, pour in the spinach sauce and add the peas. Cook for about 5 minutes until peas are defrosted.
  • Make 4 pockets in the sauce and break an egg in each one. Cook for another 10 minutes, or until the eggs are set. Cover with a lid to speed up the process.
  • Serve seasoned with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
