AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 4 people

  • ¼ cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, bruised in skin and peeled
  • 2 white onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 kg assorted green, red and yellow capsicum, seeded and cut into thick strips
  • 650 gm tomatoes, skinned and finely chopped
  • 1 red chilli pepper, seeds removed, finely chopped
  • 4 free-range eggs
01   Heat olive oil over medium heat in a large sauté pan or similar earthenware dish. Add garlic and fry until it starts to brown, then add onions and soften for 5-7 minutes. Add capsicum and cook for 8-10 minutes or until softened. Add tomatoes and season with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper. Simmer, partially covered with a lid, for 10-15 minutes, or until the mixture has softened. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
02   Make 4 depressions in the mixture and add eggs into each depression. Cover and cook over low heat, basting with juices, until the eggs have just set. Serve with crusty bread.
