Let’s take a trip to Santorini in Greece with this delicious baked eggs recipe with feta, zucchini flowers, spinach and herbs.


Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 20cm cast iron or heavy based saucepan with lid
  • 4 Large Sunny Queen Free Range eggs
  • 100g Spinach
  • 6 zucchini flowers (with small zucchini attached) cut in half lengthways
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 50ml olive oil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 long red chilli (mild to medium heat) sliced very thin
  • 70g feta cheese
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped dill
  • Sea salt flakes
  • fresh ground black pepper

Method

  1. Remove skin from garlic and crush
  2. Remove flowers from small zucchini and cut in half lengthwise
  3. Slice small zucchinis in half lengthways
  4. Peel 2 slices of lemon peel (about 1cm thick, and full length of the lemon)
  5. Chop all herbs and keep aside
  6. Bring saucepan to medium heat – add the olive oil, zucchini slices (not the flowers), lemon peel, chili, and garlic. Sauté until zucchini is just softened
  7. Reduce heat to low/medium
  8. Add the spinach and zucchini flowers for 30 seconds or until just beginning to wilt
  9. Remove lemon peel
  10. Season with sea salt flakes, cracked black pepper and add herbs. Stir to mix through
  11. Create 4 hollows in the pan with the back of a spoon and crack in the eggs.
  12. Crumble feta all over and cover with a lid for 4-5 minutes until the whites are cooked and yolks runny
  13. Remove from heat, drizzle with extra virgin olive oil, a squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste
  14. Serve in the pan with your favourite crusty bread to catch the runny egg.

  • I love zucchini flowers!
    I’m so dumb I didn’t know that zucchini flowers were things that turned into zucchinis, I always just thought they were a spare part of a zucchini plant!!!!!!
    Just asked my hubby if we had these and he explained that they were things that turn into an actual zucchini. Goes to show how much I know about growing things in the garden. Will bookmark this and be ready when the next batch grows so I can try this recipe out as it looks absolutely amazing.
