Ingredients

  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1/2 tsp sweet smoked Spanish paprika
  • 1/2 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika
  • 15 ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 2 organic eggs
  • 1 cup shredded manchego cheese
  • 2 tbsp Apollo sierra organic extra virgin olive oil
  • pinch sea salt
  • pinch black pepper
  • handful freshly chopped parsley

Instructions

  1. Finely mince 3 cloves of garlic, finely dice 1/2 of an onion, shred a generous cup of mild Manchego cheese and reserve 2 organic eggs, each one cracked into seperate small bowls
  2. Heat a fry pan with a medium heat, add in 2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and add the diced onions & minced garlic, mix with the oil continuously, after 4 minutes and the onions are translucent, add in 1/2 tsp of sweet smoked Spanish paprika and 1/2 tsp hot smoked Spanish paprika, mix together with the onions & garlic, then add in a 15 oz can of diced tomatoes, season with sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper and mix it all together until well combined
  3. After simmering the tomatoes for about 5 minutes, add the eggs into the pan, I like to make a little hole in the tomato sauce and pour in each egg, season the eggs with sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper and add the shredded manchego cheese all over the skillet, trying not to cover the egg yolks, place a lid on the pan
  4. After 2 to 3 minutes remove the lid from pan and simmer for another 2 to 4 minutes, or until the egg whites are cooked through but the egg yolks are still creamy, remove from the heat and sprinkle with freshly chopped parsley, serve next to a crusty baguette, enjoy!

New Oleocanthal Study

A new study on oleocanthal was recently published by a group of researchers from Taiwan. Oleocanthal is one of the more prominenet polyphenols found in high grade extra virgin olive oil. Oleo is Greek for olive and canth is Greek for prickly. Thus oleocanthal is primarily responsible for the prickly sensation when ingesting extra virgin olive oil by itself. Oleocanthal offers several benefits to several diseased states with its anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective qualities. The study also found that oleocanthal proactively destroys cancer cells by damaging the lysosomes leading to cancer cell toxicity in vitro and in vivo. The study went one step further to establish that oils rich in oleocanthal had this effect where oils that were not did not have this effect. So the prickly sensation you feel from consuming our oils is very beneficial.
