Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Put the mushrooms and tomatoes into 4 ovenproof dishes. Divide garlic between the dishes, drizzle over the oil and some seasoning, then bake for 10 mins.
  2. Meanwhile, put the spinach into a large colander, then pour over a kettle of boiling water to wilt it. Squeeze out any excess water, then add the spinach to the dishes. Make a little gap between the vegetables and crack an egg into each dish. Return to the oven and cook for a further 8-10 mins or until the egg is cooked to your liking.

Really loved this as a breakfast. I am very fussy about my eggs and have to have a soft yolk. The first two I gave to the dog and fried some more. The next time I poached the eggs. Eggsalent!

This was really tasty! I am wilted spinach In a pan with a tiny nob of butter but kept everything else the same. Will need to do less than 8 mins for the egg next time as it wasn't soft though still really tasty. Will definitely make this again.

Made this veggie breakfast recipe for dinner , it tasted amazing and it was so colourful that you could not but ask for more. The spinach looked like a forest and the tomatoes and mushrooms like little cities or bits of relief. The only thing is that the egg baked in the oven had a different consistency as compared to the fried one ( a little rubbery ), but nonetheless tasty and with low oil and low calories one cannot complain! Great recipe which I will try again in the future!

May be I did something really wrong, but it took at least 25 minutes for the eggs to cook, and then the yolks went hard really quickly. I won't be doing this again.

Quick and easy, just what you want for breakfast recipes. I wilted the spinach in a saucepan rather than waste the nutrients by squeezing them all out and I cooked it all in one pot as it was easier/quicker. Low calorie and it filled me up, too, great!

This is a great recipe, but again there is no idea on how you have worked out the calories per serving????
I wish that this would be added as I have to keep a record of my daily intake and without how you have made this add up I just find it difficult.
Please, please add some recipes with complete calorie breakdowns :)

Pretty tasty and very healthy. I wilted the spinach in a saucepan with a tiny bit of butter rather than washing the goodness down the sink. No need for the boiling of kettles and squeezing.

Delicious!: put lazy garlic in white wine vinegar in the mushrooms with a sprinkle of chillii flakes.I did not have whole tomatoes in the fridge so I used tomatoes on the vine (mini ones). I put it all in one dish instead of the separate dishes.

Just made this - brilliant healthy recipe. Having been on a diet for most of the last year I have missed fried eggs most of all but this really hit the spot. Low calorie and yummy - even if you have a bit of toast of the side too.

What a wasteful way to use spinach. All the goodness dissolves in the water then vanishes down the drain with it.
Why not let the spinach wilt and soften in a heavy-bottom pan?

Made this today and was simple and DELICIOUS. Sourdough toast on the side to mop up the egg really completed the meal.
