Tomato & Zucchini Baked Eggs

This is one of those one pot wonders. The ideal breakfast dish to make when you are having people around because it is just that easy and oh so delicious! It is also a great way to consume at least 2 to 3 serves of vegetables in your breakfast as well as hide green vegetables in there for your kids. 

If you have fresh herbs in your garden play around with the flavour and add whatever spices you want, turmeric is always a great one to incorporate into your dishes because it is a powerful and natural anti inflammatory.
