We make this slightly modernised, vegetarian interpretation of a ‘Full English Breakfast’ whenever we crave something savoury in the morning. It’s warm, filling and generous without being too heavy, like the traditional version often is. Apple and kale keeps the flavours interesting, while browned onions, mushrooms, sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts make it rich and hearty. We love to add some sriracha or gochujang sauce for a sweet and spicy flavour punch, but regular chilli sauce or even a good-quality ketchup can be used instead. The servings are quite generous here, so if you are a small family, it should still be enough for all of you with the addition of one or two extra eggs.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, peeled
1/2 sweet potato, peeled
10 brussels sprouts, trimmed
10 mushrooms of choice, cleaned
10 cherry tomatoes
1 red apple, cored
2 handfuls cavolo nero or curly kale, stems removed
A pinch ground cayenne pepper
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
2 free-range eggs

To Serve

Quantity Ingredient
sriracha sauce, gochujang, sweet chilli sauce or good-quality ketchup

Method

  1. Heat the oil in a medium-sized frying pan (skillet) on a medium heat. Finely slice the onion, add it to the pan and sauté for about 5 minutes or until it begins to soften.
  2. Meanwhile, thinly slice the sweet potato, cut the Brussels sprouts in half and roughly chop the mushrooms. Add them to the pan and sauté for 5 more minutes.
  3. Cut 5 of the tomatoes in half (leaving the others whole), thinly slice the apple and roughly chop the cavolo nero or kale. Add them to the pan along with the cayenne pepper, season to taste with salt and pepper and sauté for a further 5 minutes or until all of the vegetables are tender.
  4. Create two small wells in the vegetable mixture and crack an egg into each one. Cook the eggs to your liking.
  5. Serve straight from the pan, topped with a drizzle of spicy sauce or ketchup.
