  1. Heat the oil in a deep frying pan over a medium heat. Add half the garlic and a pinch of salt and cook for 20 secs, then add the spinach and cook until wilted.
  2. Tip in the tomatoes, passata, sugar, chilli, cumin and oregano. Stir in a splash of water, bring to a simmer then cook for 10 mins, until thickened. Season to taste.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, make 4 holes in the mixture and crack an egg into each. Cover with a lid and cook for 8-10 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your liking, and sprinkle over the parsley.
  4. Meanwhile, mix the yogurt in a bowl with the lemon juice and remaining garlic, then season.
  5. Once the eggs are cooked, spoon onto warm plates and top with a dollop of the lemony yogurt.

Little help

Swap the parsley for chopped coriander and the lemon yogurt for lime for a more Mexican twist.

Leftovers

Mix any spare yogurt with chopped fresh herbs and diced cucumber to make a delicious dip for crisps or crudité.
