Poached Eggs with Florina Peppers

While at my local hairdresser, besides it being the best place for your local gossip, you can pick up some great recipes. This is a quick and easy lunch, I used to make it only with onions and then someone said add slices of red Florina peppers and so I did, we love it !!  You can serve with fries. The cracked is purposely done, my husband doesn't like running eggs.

What you will need:
4 - 6 eggs depending on servings
2 medium sliced red Florina peppers can use other peppers but tastes better with Florina )
1 big onion cut into rings
Olive oil
salt and pepper to taste
a pinch of oregano
1 - 2 tablespoons of tomato paste

Once everything is sliced place in skillet and saute with 10 tablespoons of olive oil for about 10 minutes add salt, pepper and oregano.

Add two cups of water and let boil on medium heat until tender.
When tender add 1 or 2 tablespoons of tomato paste depending how red you want it, I usually use two.

And finally, add your eggs salt and pepper to taste cover and let cook not more than 10 minutes on medium heat,  unless you like them well done. As mentioned above you can serve them with fries or eat them by themselves with some feta cheese. From my table to yours, enjoy ! KALE OREXI !!!
