1 tbsp. coconut oil

2 garlic cloves, crushed
4 cups (300g) mushrooms, sliced
2 cups (450g) leaf spinach
4 eggs
handful parsley, chopped


Heat the oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft. Next, add the mushrooms and cook for another 3-4 minutes.

Season with salt and pepper.

Now start adding the spinach to the pan, you will likely have to do this in batches. Cover the pan with a lid and let it wilt, repeat this step until all the spinach is in the pan. Stir well and taste for seasoning.

Make 4 indentations (‘wells’) in the spinach and break an egg in each.

Cook for 5-6 minutes covered with a lid until egg whites are set.
