My favourite traditional, rustic Portuguese dish full of flavour.


  • 1 kg frozen peas
  • 1 onion, peeled and chopped finely
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 1 spicy Portuguese smoked sausage (chourico), sliced
  • 2 tblsp olive oil
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 4 eggs
  • small bunch of fresh chopped coriander
  • salt and pepper
  • 400ml boiling water


  • STEP 1
    In a saucepan, gently fry the onion, garlic, sausage and bay leaf in olive oil, until the onion has softened a little and the sausage has started to release its juices.
  • STEP 2
    Add the frozen peas and 400 ml hot water and season with salt and pepper.
  • STEP 3
    Bring to boil, cover pan with a lid and simmer until the peas are cooked - approx 15 minutes.
  • STEP 4
    Remove lid from pan, crack open each egg one by one into the peas mixture. Replace the lid and allow the eggs to poach in the peas mixture until cooked.
  • STEP 5
    Remove from the heat, sprinkle the coriander over and serve, ensuring that each person gets an egg and a few slices of the sausage.
  • STEP 6
    Delicious served with fresh crusty bread.
