We love eggs for any meal—and this recipe encloses them in a lovely, vibrant vegetable nest. You can use any spiralized vegetable, from sweet potatoes and zucchini to carrots and daikon. They’re gluten-free, and an easy way to get more veggies into your breakfast—although they’re also delicious for brunch, lunch, or any time at all, paired with Cape of Good Hope Altima Sauvignon Blanc

Makes: 1 


1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil or ghee

1 cup spiralized vegetable noodles such as carrots, squash, or daikon

salt and pepper

1 large egg

parmesan, to garnish

cilantro, to garnish


Heat the oil or ghee in a nonstick skillet over medium heat. Once oil or ghee is shimmering, add the veggie noodles, and season with salt and generously with black pepper. Toss the noodles and let cook for 1 minutes, just to let heat up. Create a cavity in the center of the veggie noodle mixture and crack an egg in the center. Cook, covered, until whites are set and yolk jiggles when you shake the pan, about 5 minutes. Garnish with cheese and cilantro. Serve with crusty bread and fruits of choice.
