Peppers, spinach, and eggs
To be honest, I’m not sure where this recipe came from. I think I saw an image and then tried to make my own version because I couldn’t remember where I’d seen it.
If you’re following a low residue diet, then this dish is not for you, but it IS wheat-free and gluten-free. If you’re a vegetarian who eats eggs, then swapping the parmesan for a vegetarian alternative makes it suitable for you too!
This recipe serves two, but I often halve the ingredients and do it in a smaller pan, for just me!

Diections to make peppers, spinach, and eggs:
- Preheat the grill to medium heat.
- In a large frying pan/skillet, cook the onions and peppers in oil, over medium heat for around 5 minutes.
- Season to taste with salt, pepper, and dried chilli flakes.
- Add the baby spinach and move around in the pan until wilted and even distributed.
- If you are using canned tomatoes, add those now, and warm through.

- When the whites of the eggs look almost cooked, sprinkle with parmesan and pop under the grill to finish.
- I usually top the eggs with a little pepper - Serve and enjoy!
