  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 200°C, fan 180°C. Heat the oil in a 20cm (8in) ovenproof frying pan and add the kale with a splash of water. Stir-fry until wilted then stir in the tomatoes, cumin and Tabasco, with a little seasoning and a pinch of sugar. Cook for 3-4 minutes until heated through.
  2. Make a couple of holes in the mixture and break an egg into each. Pop the pan into the hot oven for 10 minutes, or until the eggs are fully cooked through. Serve with toast, if you like, and a drop or two of extra Tabasco.

Serve with: Ginger and lemon tea

Stir 2 tsp finely grated fresh ginger into 250ml boiling water and add juice of 1/2 lemon and 2 tsp of orange-blossom honey. Steep for 2-3 minutes, then strain into a cup and add a little more honey to sweeten, if you like.
