Eggs with Turmeric Mushrooms

DSC_00018 oz baby portobello mushrooms; cut to 1/4 inch slices
1/2 onion; minced
1 stalk celery; chopped
1/4 cup tomato sauce
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
pinch fresh ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon oregano
pinch thyme
2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
4 eggs
4 slices provolone cheese

Served over greens (pictured) or on toast.

Preheat a large heavy bottomed skillet that has a lid over medium heat. Add the sliced mushrooms, cover with lid and allow to “sweat” (the mushrooms will leak out moisture). Check the progress of the mushrooms every 5 minutes. When they are swimming in their own moisture add the onion and celery, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Remove the lid, add the tomato sauce, salt, pepper, turmeric, oregano and thyme, stir and allow to simmer without the lid until half the moisture has evaporated. – if you are having this dish over toast put the bread into the toaster at this time- Drizzle with olive oil, crack four eggs on top of the vegetables, cover with lid and cook to desired doneness about 3 minutes (I like the whites cooked but the yolk still runny. If you do not want runny yolk you can also “pop” the yolk with the edge of a cracked eggshell).

Put a slice of cheese over salad greens or on top of a piece of toast and scoop out an egg with the mushroom and place directly over the cheese.
