How lovely is having friends over for a chilled out Sunday brunch?
In the Winston household, it’s one of our favourite things to do.
This recipe is something that has amalgamated over time, since having it served for breakfast at a Turkish restaurant in Sydney back in 2010.
We use a tagine dish, but you could try with any casserole dish with a lid (or even put foil in lieu of a lid… I suppose!)
Here are the basic steps:
1. Get some pumpkin roasting in the oven (about a tray’s worth)
2. Make the meatballs in the Thermomix (SO MUCH FASTER than doing it by hand)
3. Roll up the meatballs & put them on a tray in the fridge
4. Roughly chop whatever veges you have in the Thermomix. Add oil.
5. Set for 5 mins, 100 deg, reverse speed soft.
6. Fry the meatballs on the stove.
7. Make the sauce in the Tagine. Use the sautéed veges, a can of crushed tomatoes, pine nuts, meatballs, olives, chorizo… add your own creative flair. We’ve never had two of these dishes completely the same.
8. Crack eggs over the top of the sauce
9. Add a little goat’s cheese / fetta.
10. Put the lid on and pop it in a moderate oven until the egg whites are cooked, but the yolks are a touch runny. Keep an eye on it, as it will depend on how many people you are cooking for, the size of your pot etc.
The most important thing is that you have fun with it, use lots of whole foods that you have on hand, and that you have something delicious to eat as you gather with friends. Check out the video for more details.
