Spinach menemen

Rustle up this Turkish-inspired breakfast dish, made with chunks of crispy chorizo, sweet baby spinach and perfectly runny eggs. Adding red chilli and a pinch of smoked paprika brings a gorgeous warmth to this easy, one-pan brunch recipe.

  1. In a pan, dry-fry the chorizo until crisp. Set aside until needed.
  2. Heat the oil in the same pan. Add the onion and fry, over a low heat, for 5 mins, until softened. Stir in the garlic and spices and cook for a further 2 mins.
  3. Stir in the greens and season. Cover and cook for 1 min, then uncover and continue cooking for 3 mins more. Fold through the spinach until just wilted.
  4. Pour in the cream and lemon juice. Make 2 hollows in the mixture and crack an egg into each. Scatter over the chorizo, feta, dill, chilli and paprika. Cook gently for 8 mins, or until the whites have set.
