    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.

    Smoky Lentil Sloppy Joe Stuffed Peppers

    This hearty version of traditional sloppy joes has a tidy helping of sleep-aiding dietary fibre, thanks to its payload of smoky lentils. Swapping out the doughy bun for sweet bell pepper ups the nutritional ante and visual appeal. It’s also superb as leftovers. Smoke and fire Chipotle peppers are ripened red jalapeno chiles that have been smoked and dried. In stores, they’re typically sold in a rich, smoky flavoured adobo sauce. They add fiery, complex flavour to sauces used for pasta dishes, tacos, and any version of sloppy joes.
