This is warming at breakfast, lunch and dinner! It’s packed full of the free radical clearing antioxidant lycopene that will keep the bloke’s prostates healthy. Great for women too. Lycopene is best sourced from food rather than tablets as the other components of cooked tomatoes are useful. There are variations from Israel,Tunisia and most middle eastern countries. Feeds 2 – 4. Roast 2 red capsicums (peel skins off) or chop and cook with tomatoes, 4 large tomatoes chopped, 1 spanish onion chopped (or 3 golden shallots), 4 eggs, 1/2 cup chopped parsley, 1 Tblsp tomato paste, 2 garlic cloves crushed, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander, 2 tsp paprika (sweet or hot – don’t do what I did and think you were adding sweet, but put the hot one in the jar marked sweet… then added chilli! – needless to say it was memorable, edible luckily, haha), 1 1/2 cups filtered water, plain yogurt or labna (or feta), olive oil. Add onion to a little olive oil until golden, then add garlic and spices until fragrant. Stir through tomatoes and capsicum then add water & parsley. Cook for around 10 minutes until reduced but still sloppy. Then make a well for eggs and plop in to poach (or bake in the oven in a baking dish or individual ramekins. Once eggs are soft poached serve drizzled with yogurt or blobs of labna (yogurt cheese) or feta. Dunk in your favourite sour dough, flat bread or polenta. You could also add cooked cannellini beans for something heartier or swap the eggs for meat balls. The variations are only limited by your imagination.
