Tomatoes and eggs

Eastside Road, February 20, 2016—

THIS WAS TRULY a delicious one-course meal: highly flavored, spicy, warming, filling, fresh, unexpected. Cook began with the classic soffrito, then added garlic, shredded ginger, chopped green onions, and a minced jalapeño pepper; then coriander, cayenne; then a can of tomatoes, chopped, and a little water. After that had simmered for a while she poached eggs on top of the tomatoes, and served it garnished with cilantro and a few chopped scallions. What a fine dinner! We had a green salad afterward, of course.

Wine does not accompany eggs well. I had a second Martini instead.
