This recipe’s environmental sustainability level is: Good.

To eat sustainably at each meal, our advice is to keep within 1000 grams of CO2 equivalence (carbon footprint) and 1000 litres of virtual water (water footprint). Remember that animal protein (meat, cheese, fish and eggs) have a greater impact than grains, beans, pulses and vegetables. Vegetable sides generally have a low environmental impact, equivalent to around 100 grams of CO2, including dressing.


Method

Toss the tomatoes in a little olive oil with a pinch of salt and pepper. Arrange in a frying pan or ovenproof skillet.

Roast the tomatoes at 170°C for approximately 15-20 mins, until they have taken on a little colour and are soft to the touch.

Toss the focaccia in a little olive oil and add to the pan in between the tomatoes, then put the pan back into the oven for 3 mins.

Remove the pan from the oven again and crack the eggs into it, one at a time. Dot the feta cheese around the surface, then put back in the oven until the egg white is just about set with the egg yolk still runny.

Drizzle with a little more extra virgin olive oil, sprinkle on some black pepper and a few fresh basil leaves.


The Chef’s Advice

Add a side salad of rocket for a lovely full brunch menu.

Nutritional Advice

Eggs can be eaten more than once per week as part of a healthy and sustainable diet.

Environmental Advice

Reduce your consumption of meat, especially red and processed meat.

Eggs are lower impact protein sources than red meat. To increase the sustainability of the dish, opt for organic or pasture-raised eggs whenever possible.
