Servings 2


  • 1 skillet pan
  • 1 Pan to blanch the brussels sprouts


  • ½ onion
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 7 oz brussels sprouts
  • 1 zucchini
  • 1 pinch smoked paprika
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 cup baby spinash
  • 1 avocado


  • First step should always be to blanch the brussels sprouts (unless you are using frozen ones). This is basically when they get submerged in boiling water just for a few minutes, not until they're fully cooked, but just enough to take away some of the bitterness.
  • Peel onion and garlic then slice them quite finely.
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet pan on medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 3 minutes (onion should be translucent). Add the garlic and cook an additional minute.
  • Shave or slice very finely the brussel sprouts. Add them to the pan and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. When the brussels sprouts have softened, add the zucchini then the paprika and salt and pepper. Stir for another 5 minutes.
  • Add the baby spinach and stir for another 2 minutes, then turn the heat to low.
  • Flatten the mixture with a spatula and create 4 small wells, then crack the eggs into each well.
  • Add a lid and cook until the eggs are done to your liking.
  • Sprinkle the fresh parsley on top and garnish with sliced avocado.
