Serves 4

Prep Time 25 min

Total Time 45 min.


  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 10 ounces mushrooms, trimmed and sliced (3 cups sliced)
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 yellow summer squash, or zucchini, diced
  • 1 14-ounce c whole tomatoes, with juice
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper, (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 4 small or medium eggs
  • 4 slices French or Italian bread, toasted

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Step 2

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion and sauté until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add mushrooms, green peppers and squash or zucchini; sauté until the mushrooms are limp and exude their liquid. Add tomatoes and mash with a wooden spoon. Stir in crushed red pepper, if using, and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes. Stir in tomato paste and season with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Spread the vegetable mixture evenly over the bottom of a shallow 3-quart baking dish. Make 4 wells in the vegetable mixture and break an egg into each one. Season eggs with salt and pepper. Bake until the eggs are set, 12 to 15 minutes. Gently transfer eggs to plates with a large spoon and surround with the vegetable mixture. Serve with toasted bread.
