2 whole bell peppers
large, any color
olive oil
4 whole eggs
organic (rich in Omega-3)
sea salt
freshly ground black pepper
fresh herbs
Visually stunning and simple to prepare, this lovely dish always brings a smile. Use Omega-3-rich organic eggs from pasture-raised chickens if available. Any color of bell pepper will work, but try to select 4-point bell peppers instead of 3-point. They taste better.
Slice bell pepper into rings about 1/2-inch thick. Depending on the size of the bell pepper, this should yield at least 4 rings per pepper. Save the remaining bits of bell pepper for garnish or use in a salad.
Lightly coat the bottom of a skillet with olive oil. Turn heat to medium. Add 3 or 4 bell pepper rings to the skillet. Make sure they are not touching each other. After about a minute, turn the rings over.
Carefully crack one egg into the center of each bell pepper ring, taking care not to break the yolk. Lightly salt and pepper everything.
Cover skillet with a lid, so that the eggs will "steam-fry." Turn heat to low. After 1 minute, lift the lid and check to see if the eggs are done to your liking. (I prefer to have a soft yolk and non-runny whites.)
Remove egg flowers from skillet and serve with a sprig or sprinkle of your favorite fresh herb.
