Yields 3-4 servings 

Ingredients: 

  • 300 gram package frozen Spinach, defrosted

  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled

  • 1 shallot, peeled and quartered

  • ½ cup pitted green olives

  • ¼ cup sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil

  • ½ tsp sumac

  • ¼ tsp red chili flakes

  • ½ tsp freshly ground pepper

  • ¼ cup olive oil

  • 6 eggs

  • ½ cup crumbled feta cheese

  1. In a food processor, add the spinach (do not drain).

  2. Add garlic, shallot, pitted green olives, sun-dried tomatoes, sumac, red chili flakes, & ground pepper.

  3. Process until fairly smooth, scraping down the bowl occasionally.

  4. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Add olive oil. When the oil is hot and shimmering, add the spinach mixture to the pan.

  6. Make 6 wells in the spinach mixture. Crack an egg into each well. Cover pan and reduce heat to low. Cook for 4 minutes.
