Greens with Eggs for the Poor …that eat like Kings
The following recipe -after doing some small research in Greek Blogs- is said to be common in Pilion which is in the center of Greece. Then again every place in Greece can easily claim that.
Its pretty easy to make, its cheap, healthy and unique! Simple combination that tastes so good.
For the following recipe, the essential thing is to be get whatever Greens are available near you at that time of the year. For this one i found spinanch but i guess you can make even better combinations if you try.
INGREDIENTS FOR EGGS WITH GREENS
– Whatever Greens like or are available.
– 1 egg
– 1 bunch of dill finely chopped
– 1 small onion chopped
– 1 can of tomato juice
– Olive Oil
Wash the Greens really good. In deep pan, add some olive oil and heat it up. Throw the onions inside and stir but be careful not to burn them.
Add the Greens and lower a bit the hit. Stir them and watch slowly the juices to evaporate.When there are no more juices left, add the dill and the tomato juice and leave them a little bit more.
Oh! We forgot! Add some salt also!
Now comes the tricky part! As our mixture gets a single form we need to add the egg on top. So create a small hole in the Greens and brake carefully the egg on top so it will be cooked.
When its ready, add some pepper and slowly remove them with a spatula and place them to the plate.
Next time i will try to add paprika also and see how it tastes!…
