Fried Eggs with Fried Rapeseed Flowers and Wood Sorrel

    Serves 4
    4 eggs
    2 handfuls rape flowers (if you can’t pick or get rapeseed flowers, you can use green asparagus or broccolini)
    ½ dl olive oil
    Sea salt and fresh ground pepper

    Rinse the rapeseed flowers in cold water. Remember to be very thorough, since there’s often small insects hiding among the flowers (it’s important that you use pesticide free rapeseed flowers).

    Place a frying pan on the fire and let it get very hot, put a little oil in, break the eggs into the pan, and add the rapeseed flowers, season with sea salt and fresh ground pepper.

    Let the eggs and the rapeseed flowers fry for 1-2 min. until the eggs have become “set,” and the rapeseed flowers have wilted a little, but still have good crunch.

    Take the fried eggs and rapeseed flowers out of the frying pan and arrange on a plate or dish. Drizzle a little olive oil on top and eat while still hot.

    Eat with good bread.
