Silverbeet Egg Pan


    Silverbeet Egg Pan

    Serves 4


    This dish is just as good for a lazy weekend brunch as it is to serve as part of a workday dinner. The pile of sautéed vegetables makes a perfect bed for the delicately cooked eggs. Excellent garnish options include grated Parmesan, smoked salt, hot sauce or smoked paprika.

    1 large bunch silverbeet
    3 tsp (15 ml) grapeseed or extra-virgin olive oil
    1 medium-sized onion, chopped
    2 cups (500 ml) sliced mushrooms
    3 garlic cloves, crushed
    2 cups (500 ml) grated swede
    3 tsp (15 ml) fresh thyme
    1/4 tsp (1 ml) sea salt
    1/4 tsp (1 ml) freshly ground black pepper
    4 large free-range eggs

    Remove silverbeet leaves from stems. Chop stems and leaves. Heat oil in large frying pan over medium heat. Add silverbeet stems and onion; cook for 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and garlic and cook 3 minutes. Stir in grated swede and silverbeet leaves, in batches if necessary, along with thyme, salt and pepper. Cook until silverbeet leaves have wilted.

    Make 4 small nests in vegetable mixture. Crack 1 egg into each nest. Cover frying pan, reduce heat slightly and cook until whites are set but yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes. Being careful not to break the egg yolks, transfer the vegetables and eggs to serving plates and garnish as you like.
