Heat the oil gently in a large frying pan. Add the onions or leeks and a pinch of salt, then cook until softened and translucent.

Add the coriander and fennel seeds and the chilli flakes. Once the seeds begin to crackle, add the spinach and turn down the heat.

Stir everything together until the spinach has wilted slightly but is still nice and green, then push it to one side of the pan. Pour a little more oil into the pan, then crack in the eggs and fry until cooked to your liking.

To serve, stir the yogurt through the spinach mix and season, plate it up with the fried eggs and squeeze over a little lemon juice. Season with black pepper and chilli flakes to serve.

They provide vitamin A, vitamin D, all the B vitamins, folic acid, and are a rich source of selenium (for thyroid function) and iodine as well as many other minerals. They are an excellent source of choline which helps our cells and nerves to signal, as well as with healthy construction of the cell walls.
