Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 ripe plum tomatoes
  • Olive oil, for cooking
  • 4 slices ciabatta or other rustic-type bread
  • 4 large eggs
  • 2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced

  • ½ teasp. balsamic vinegar
  • A little salt and freshly-ground black pepper
  • To Serve: Lightly dressed baby leaf salad with herbs

To Cook

Heat a heavy-based griddle pan. Thickly slice the plum tomatoes and then lightly brush with olive oil. Add to the heated pan and cook for about 5 minutes until nicely marked. Transfer to a plate and keep warm. Brush the bread with a little more oil and toast on the same pan until nicely marked.

Meanwhile, heat a little olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan and crack in the eggs. Scatter over the garlic and chilli, if using, and cook for a couple of minutes, spooning the hot oil over the egg yolks until they are cooked to your liking.

Place the griddled bread on warmed plates and quickly arrange the griddled tomatoes on top.

Scatter the chives into the egg pan and sprinkle over the balsamic vinegar. Season generously, then slide the eggs on to the tomatoes and drizzle over any pan juices. Serve with the salad.

Rory O’Connell’s Summer spinach with garlic, chilli and lemon

 rachel summer spinach 5616

Directions

Wash the destalked spinach in several changes of cold water, then allow it to drain in order to remove as much of the water as possible.

Place a wide, low-sided, heavy saucepan or frying pan on the heat and add the olive oil. Immediately add the peeled thinly sliced garlic, and cook gently until the olive oil gets hot and the garlic colours slightly. Add the crushed dried chilli or the chilli flakes, whichever you are using, and cook for a few seconds – the garlic should now be golden.

Increase the heat and add the drained spinach, being careful because it will hiss and spit a bit. Cook the spinach, turning it constantly, then season with a little salt and freshly ground black pepper.

Add the lemon juice and zest, and stir them in. Pull the pan off the heat and taste. Correct the seasoning and serve the spinach immediately in a hot dish. The spinach can also be removed from the pan when it is cooked, spread out flat to cool, and served later at room temperature.
