Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion diced
  • 4 garlic cloves finely chopped
  • 9 ounces brussels sprouts shaved or finely sliced
  • 1 zucchini grated
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 2 cups packed baby spinach
  • 5 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 large avocado for garnish

Instructions

  • Heat olive oil in a saute pan on medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion becomes translucent. Add the garlic and cook an additional minute.
  • Add the shaved brussels sprouts and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. When the brussels sprouts have softened, add the zucchini and spices and stir for another minute.
  • Add the baby spinach and stir until it just starts to wilt, then turn the heat to low.
  • Flatten the mixture with a spatula and create 5 small wells, then crack the eggs into each well.
  • Cook until the eggs are done to your liking. You can also add a lid to steam and cook the eggs faster.
  • Sprinkle the fresh cilantro on top and garnish with sliced avocado.
