Anna's Family Kitchen was inspired by my love of food and desire to feed my family healthy, home cooked wholesome meals that are beautifully presented and appealing but don’t require hours of prep in the kitchen.


This is probably one of my all time favourite brunches but it’s also great as a quick lunch or dinner. It’s basically a tomato based sauce flavoured with spices, then eggs are poached in the sauce.

Serves: 4

Prep: 20 minutes
Cooking: 5 minutes
Total: 25 minutes

Difficulty: easy




2 red onions chopped⠀
3 garlic cloves crushed
200g mixed peppers
2 tsp ground cumin⠀
2 tsp paprika
1 tsp cayenne pepper
2 cans chopped tomatoes⠀
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
100g spinach
4 eggs⠀
50g feta

Colour the onions for 5 minutes, add the peppers and colour for 5 minutes more before adding the garlic and spices. Stir for a minute of so then add the balsamic vinegar and tomatoes. Simmer for 15 minutes or longer if you want a richer sauce.⠀

Add the spinach. Give the pan a quick stir then make 4 wells in the sauce. Crack an egg into each.⠀

Sprinkle over the feta or mozzarella and put under a grill or in a hot oven for 5 minutes. Alternatively just stick a lid on the pan for 7-8 minutes but the cheese won’t colour.

Serve with crusty bread.
