Preparation

  • Ingredients:
    Prepare the Vegan Protein Bread according to the directions on the package.
  • Ingredients:
    1 clove garlic, 10 g mint, 15 g parsley, 0.5  onion, 1  pepper, 0.5  leek
    Chop the garlic, mint, and parsley finely. Dice the onion, pepper, and leek.
  • Ingredients:
    1 tsp Coconut oil
    Heat the coconut oil in a pan on medium heat.
  • Ingredients:
    1 tsp cumin, 0.25 tsp nutmeg, 0.25 tsp cayenne pepper, salt, pepper
    Put the onions into the pan and saute until transparent. Add the garlic and cook 30 seconds or so, until fragrant. Add the pepper and leek and cook for another 3-4 minutes. Then add the spices to the pan and stir well.
  • Ingredients:
    400 g spinach, 200 g peas, 1  lemon, juiced
    Add the spinach, peas, parsley, and mint. As soon as the spinach starts to wilt, add the lemon juice to the pan. Bring to a simmer and cook for 3-4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Ingredients:
    4  eggs, salt, pepper
    Press four indentations into the spinach-pea base. One by one, crack each egg carefully into each of the indentations. Season the eggs with a bit of salt and pepper. Let the pan simmer for about 10 minutes. The egg whites should be solid, and the yolks as hard as you prefer when you eat them.
  • Top with fresh herbs, salt, pepper, chili flakes, and feta. Serve with the Vegan Protein Bread.
  • Enjoy!
