One Fine Day - Tomato Carrot Poached Eggs


Hello there everyone!
Few days ago I was super random, and made this for my lunch/dinner. Inspired by Tuscany cuisine (Italy). And here I made well-cooked poached eggs since my family like it that way better

Ingredients:
1 carrot, diced
2 tomatoes, diced
1 cup of passata
2 eggs
Salt & Pepper
Oregano
Dried Basil
Paprika powder
2 tbsp of sugar (I need sugar because my passata way too sour for my liking)
1 tbsp minced garlic
Olive oil

Directions:
Put the oil in a pan over medium-high heat and heat until the oil is hot
Add diced carrots
1 minute later, add  diced tomatoes and passata
Add salt, pepper, oregano, dried basil, paprika powder, minced garlic, and sugar as your liking, combine it
Make 2 holes from on them, and crack the eggs on both of the holes
Put the lid on, and let it cook as your liking. Whether you like your poached eggs to be half cooked or well cooked
Serve it with plain bread or if you are asian, you can serve it alongside with rice

Buon Appetito!
