My favourite recipes have a few things in common:
- They look intricate but are actually deceptively easy to put together.
- They require few ingredients, and preferably some I already have in the fridge/cupboard.
- They feel indulgent but are actually good for you.
Such recipes are good to have around any time of the year, but especially so during the festive period.
When you’re already running around like a headless chicken, desperatey trying to get a present for everyone on your list, wrapping them all and writing Christmas cards whilst managing a busier-than-usual calendar, feeding oneself with good, nutrient-rich food often steps back in favour of a mince pie-based diet.
And yet I have hope these curried spinach baked eggs will bring some nutrition back onto the pre-Christmas table.
But truth be told, they are egg-celent any time of the year – and the day!
Quick & easy to make, they make for a filling lunch, a light dinner or an brunch dish.
And, they’re absolutely egg-straordinary if you’re trying to knock a (festive or not) hangover out of the park!
The recipe below serves two, so multiply as required according to the number of over-worked elves/colleagues/family members you need to feed!
A very simple, very special dish – recipes don’t get much more egg-straordinary than that!
