    Huevos a la Flamenca (serves 2) - PICTURE IS JUST FOR 1 PERSON THOUGH
    Huevos - Result.jpg

    With the long list of ingredients and steps this might look a bit daunting but it really is dead easy to make.

    Ingredients
    • 1 small onion, chopped
    • 1 clove garlic, minced or pressed
    • 90 g diced cooked ham (I use 90g raw bacon bits - which I fry with the onions)
    • 75 g cooked chorizo sausage (leave this out to eliminate the syns).
    • 400g tin chopped tomatoes (I sometimes put more in as I like lots of sauce!)
    • 4 eggs
    • 75 g cooked peas
    • ½ small red pepper - cooked for a few minutes in the microwave until soft. Skin it and cut into strips (don’t absolutely have to skin it though)
    • 8 asparagus spears (woody bit snapped off) - cooked for 2 minutes in boiling water
    • 2 artichoke hearts – sliced into 4 each
    • ½ tsp smoked or sweet paprika
    • Salt & pepper
    • Chopped fresh parsley
    Method
    1. Carefully fry the onions and garlic in FryLight until soft.
    2. Add the chopped tomatoes, season with salt, pepper & paprika and cook on a medium heat for 10 minutes until reduced.
    3. Add ham (& chorizo) and cook for a 2 mins max.
    4. Spray 2 large earthenware ramekins with FryLight (I actually use an oval glass dish which I don't spray).
    5. Split tomato sauce between the ramekins.
    6. Make two wells in each ramekin and break an egg into each well (i.e. 2 per ramekin).
    7. Sprinkle the cooked peas around the outside of each ramekin.
    8. Arrange the strips of red pepper decoratively (& carefully) over the eggs.
    9. Add 2 slices of artichoke heart and 4 asparagus tips to each ramekin.
    10. Sprinkle with salt and pepper and parsley.
    11. Put in a medium hot oven (160-180c) and cook until the whites are set and the yolks runny – about 10-15 minutes.

    Leave the chorizo/ham out as a totally veggie option.

    Apart from the chorizo as far as I can see this should be free on Green, with the 45g ham/bacon being about a ½ HExB.
    The chorizo is the tricky one. On green it is 4½ syns for the 38g portion.
    On EE you just have to syn the chorizo and it is only 2½ syns for the 38g portion.
    On Red you need to count 2½ syns for the chorizo and 1 syn for the peas (per person) or as teeny portion of a HexB (less than ¼)!

    If you can’t get, or don’t like artichokes, just use more asparagus – which is what I usually do. My OH isn’t keen on artichoke.

    This amount is perfect as a good, hearty lunch. We often only put one egg on though as I find it too filling otherwise.
    You can also serve as an evening meal with some rice or SW chips.

    ENJOY !!!!!

    I've updated this recipe today as I tried it again and adjusted the portion sizes of some things.

    I will do, think my husband will like this too. We're both chorizo lovers, and if I can eat it while on plan, well that's even better! :D
