Tomato Sauce and Poached Egg Tapas Style


Cooking Tip: Fire up the fry pan to a medium heat & with no oil throw your dry herbs in (obviously one flavour at a time). This wakes the dry herbs up and releases there natural oils. In short it makes your paprika taste more paprika-y. Be sure to keep a close eye on the pan as you don't want to burn the herbs/spices. Cook until the herbs/spices are fragrant. Place on a pan and let cool before using.

Training Tip: Dont take things so seriously. If you're enjoying training and having fun you're more likely to succeed. If it's always a drag, or you're always putting negative connotations on going to the gym of course you're going to perform like shit. Do it because you want to, because you love how you feel afterwards, because you know achieving things in the gym can set you up for overcoming/achieving things in real life.



Tomato Sauce and Poached Egg Tapas Style

This is one of those things whipped up from an ’empty’ fridge that turned out delicious – loosely inspired by traditional Spanish dish Huevos a la Flamenca.  Not only is this tasty, it’s also a great way to clean the fridge!


  • Egg
  • 1/2 red onion, sliced thin
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced thin
  • 1/2 zucchini, julienned
  • 1/2 capsicum, finely diced
  • ~100g of meat (bacon/chorizo/turkey breast/etc) cut long and thin
  • 1/2 can of whole peeled tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp white pepper
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil (from the antipasto jar if possible!)



Sauté onions and garlic in a pan. Add meat, zucchini and capsicum. Continue to cook through. Add tomatoes, extra oil, spices, salt to taste. Simmer for 10 or so minutes while poaching an egg.

Transfer sauce into a bowl, place egg on top and enjoy!
