Serves 2

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 small yellow onion, diced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 16 ounces tomato or marinara sauce
  • 1 medium tomato, chopped
  • Pinch of cayenne (optional)
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 big handful of greens, chopped (I used spinach)
  • 2 cups cooked grains (farro, quinoa, brown rice, etc.)
  • 2 ounces feta, crumbled
  1. Sauté onion in olive oil with salt and pepper in a medium-sized pan with a high lip for a few minutes, over medium heat, until soft and fragrant.
  2. Mix in sauce and tomato (and cayenne if using) and cook to heat everything through. Lastly, add the chopped greens and fold in.
  3. With a spoon, make four little pockets in the saucy mess into which you can crack the eggs. Crack them in, then sprinkle a little salt and pepper on each egg, and drag the whites through the sauce. Don’t break the yolk. You know this. Mama didn’t raise no fool.
  4. Put a lid over the pan and let cook until the whites are just set, about 4 minutes.
  5. Pile some of your cooked grains at the bottom of a bowl, then top with big scoops of saucy mess and an egg. Add a little crumbled feta. Devour.

this is great, but NOT vegan!

This was really great and easy to make. I used kale as greens and quinoa for grains, but I added a bit of curry powder to the sauce. It was everything I ever wanted.

This was excellent! My picky husband wolfed it down AND gave it a two thumbs up. I'd make this again in a hot second, and if there were any eggs left I might make it again tomorrow!

Made this tonight & it was great. Instead of using tomato sauce + tomatoes, I used a 20oz can of San Marzanos & cooked/mashed them down into a chunky sauce while the rice cooked. Beautiful and filling meal!

Why is this in the "Vegan" collection? This recipe is (doubly) NOT VEGAN. It contains both EGGS and CHEESE, neither of which can ever be considered vegan. Huge slip-up on an otherwise fine, quality site.

didn't have any greens on hand, so sauteed mushrooms with the onion, and topped the dish off with avocado and roquefort at the end. am already thinking about which variations to make it with again tonight! very versatile and delicious.

This was absolutely amazing! We used quinoa and added zucchini and peppers instead of the handful of greens. We also used parmesan instead of feta. Delish!

We made this a few nights ago, and it was so delicious. We added broccoli & used probably twice as many greens as called for. Definitely a keeper.
