Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium, non-stick frying pan and cook the peppers, onion and garlic over a moderate heat, stirring occasionally for 3-5 minutes until softened and golden in places. Meanwhile toast the bread and place onto your serving plates.
  2. Once the peppers and onions are soft, add the paprika and stir, then add the spinach leaves and stir once more. Crack in the eggs and quickly begin to stir constantly for 30 seconds – 1 minute, cooking the eggs within the vegetables until soft and creamy.
  3. Working quickly, spoon the eggs onto the warm toast and serve straight away.

Tip: For a quick, no-fuss tomato sauce, in advance of this recipe, place 1 small onion into a small pan with 1 tbsp olive oil and cook for 2 minutes. Then add two fresh, roughly chopped vine tomatoes and continue to cook for a further 3 minutes until the onions and tomatoes are soft. Add 2 tbsp tomato purée and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Remove from the heat and whizz with a hand blender until smooth. Serve with the scrambled eggs.
