  • 200g bellaverde® broccoli
  • 45ml/3tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely sliced
  • 1 medium aubergine, cut into small cubes (about 1cm)
  • 1 yellow pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 1 (400g) can chopped tomatoes
  • 5 fresh basil leaves, chopped
  • 50g/2oz pitted Kalamata olives
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 25g/1oz freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper




  1. Heat the oil in a 25cm diameter frying pan, add the onion, aubergines and pepper and sauté for 6-8 mins until soft and browned, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, wash the bellaverde® and prepare by trimming the base of the spear and chopping the remaining into 3cm pieces.
  3. Pour the tomatoes in the frying pan with the bellaverde®, basil and olives. Cover the pan with a baking tray or lid and cook, over a medium heat for 4-5 mins or until all the vegetables are tender. Meanwhile, preheat the grill.
  4. Use a spoon to make four hollows in the tomato mixture and very gently break one egg into each. Recover the pan and cook over a medium heat for 2 mins. Remove the lid, sprinkle over the Parmesan and cook under the grill for 2-3 mins or until the eggs are cooked as you like them. Serve immediately with  warm crusty bread.
