80--- Eggs in Purgatory's Garden

A little more greenery added to the classic dish of baked eggs in tomato sauce.

Eggs in Purgatory's Garden
Serves 5

Olive oil spray
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 Tbsp diced green chiles (yes, I've used them in everything lately)
4 cups chopped baby spinach and kale leaves (yep- in everything)
4 oz low sodium tomato paste
14 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
14 oz can white beans, drained and rinsed
1 Tbsp hot sauce (I love Valentina's)
5 large eggs
Salt and fresh ground black pepper
2 oz crumbled feta cheese (optional)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Heat olive oil in a cast iron skillet over medium heat.  Add onion and saute until fragrant, then add in green chiles and spinach/kale leaves.  Saute until leaves are wilted, ~3 minutes.  Add tomato paste and diced tomatoes and mix well.  Stir in beans and hot sauce and cook until bubbly, ~ 5 minutes.  

Make five wells in the sauce mixture, then crack an egg in each well.  Sprinkle with salt and pepper then gently transfer skillet to heated oven.  

Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until yolks are set to your liking.  Remove from oven, sprinkle with feta cheese if desired, then scoop each egg with a generous helping of sauce and vegetables into a bowl and serve with whole grain toast points.
