This is the ultimate vegetables and eggs breakfast. There is so much clever flavour built into this recipe. Everything tastes better with a little bit of time and attention to detail. Cooking the eggs to “jammy” not soft-boiled, nor hard-boiled is a game changer. It adds this luscious texture and creates this umami-rich sauce. Crisping up the chorizo renders out the fat and creates that crispy, fried texture. Sunblushing the tomatoes is such a simple trick to quadrupiling the flavour in tomatoes. And as for the star of the show, IMO, the whipped herby ricotta, now this is special. Make a batch, serve it for brunch, have it with salads, or spread on toast with hot smoked salmon. The possibilities are endless. The more herbs you can use, the more interesting the flavour. Never underestimate that little bit of fresh dill. I love to serve this with my local artisan wholegrain sourdough toast. Just Fab.
