Recipe Notes

  • You could substitute fresh mozzarella or Parmesan for the feta.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeno. Cook, stirring often, until soft, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic, coriander, cinnamon and salt. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the spinach and lemon juice. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until spinach as wilted, about 5 to 6 minutes. When wilted, spread the spinach evenly on the bottom of the pan. Make indentions for each egg.
  3. Break the eggs into the indentions. Increase heat to medium, cover and cook until eggs are set to your liking, about 4 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. 
  4. Top with crumbled feta, cracked black pepper and fresh herbs.
