Red’s 3 Favorite Winter Juices and Smoothies: Protein Packed Matcha Smoothie/Citrus Beet Juice/Tropical Carrot Juice.
You knew this had to be coming, right?!?
The eggs I mean? You guys know how much I love an egg with my meal, right? Breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack… whatever, I love eggs. I think fried are probably my favorite, BUT I’m really loving soft-boiled and poached at the moment as well. I especially love eggs with carby things like toast, pasta, rice and obviously Naan. Naan is always a favorite of mine, but I am guessing, if you’ve been reading for a while, that you knew that too.
Geeze, am I predictable or what?? Oh well, it’s good food, so predictable or not I am happy!
So I feel like I have been blab, blab, blabbing to you guys all week, but umm, my brother Kai and his girlfriend Caitlin just stopped over to say goodbye before they leave for school (Cait to Cinci and Kai to LA). They are the last two “holiday guests” to go and I am totally sad. One, because the holidays are over and I didn’t get enough chill out time with my Christmas tree and ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas (I maybe even cried throwing out my Christmas tree over the weekend) and two, because Kai and Caitlin are my most favorite people. They chat with me, Cait does my make-up, and Kai makes me DO things… like other than work.
Good brother, right?
They even got me to leave my house and venture out into the real world on Monday and head down to Denver to shop…till we dropped…literally. We shopped and shopped and I think I passed out the moment we got on to the highway to head back up into the mountains. I think it was the combo of tiredness and the bowl of rice + salsa little Miss Asher and I shared from Chipotle (rice for Asher, and salsa with a side of rice for me, Kai got a burrito the size of my thigh…I was like, whooooaaa). Yeah, that is how we roll. Bowls of rice and salsa. Odd?? For sure, but good. So good.
We girls like our carbs.
Also, I have decided I am totally over being the third wheel. UGH. How are people supposed to meet other people in this world if they work from home and maybe… never leave?? Oh man, oh man.
2016 life goal: get out and meet someone so I am no longer the third wheel. Cousin Abby? You with me on this??
Anyways, they are gone, and now it’s officially back to reality around here. Is this hitting anyone else a little hard this week? I’m feeling like there may be a lot of us in the same boat here, no??
Good news is I am bringing eggs to the table today. Eggs all cozy in a garlic herbed yogurt, topped with a spicy coconut butter and sitting on a piece of fresh, hot, naan.
These Turkish fried eggs in herbed yogurt could honestly be made for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The dish comes together so quickly, is totally healthy and just kind of the ultimate power meal. And did I mention there is goat cheese involved too? And sun-dried tomato pesto AND… a spicy coconut butter sauce – this sauce is legit and delish, and apparently very commonly paired with turkish eggs from what I have read.
Traditionally, turkish eggs include a butter sauce made up of Aleppo chile pepper flakes, paprika and butter but I can’t get the Aleppo chile pepper flakes at my local grocery store and I didn’t want to order them from Amazon, so I just used crushed red pepper flakes. I’m sure the flavor is slightly different, but I think the butter sauce is amazing, so I’m going with it! I also used half coconut oil to keep this recipe on the healthier side. After all, we are staying committed to a Healthy January – remember!
I really love this recipe. The combo of fried eggs, creamy-garlicy-herby yogurt, spicy butter sauce, sun-dried tomato pesto and soft and fluffy naan is truly out of this world. I added some fresh spinach for color, plus extra veggies, a sprinkle of goat cheese and toasted sesame seeds.
This is my ultimate anytime, any day, meal right here. This meal comes together in under thirty minutes, and whether you are using store-bought naan or homemade, all of the toppings are super healthy. Hello greek yogurt, eggs, spinach, garlic, herbs, lemon, tomatoes, chiles and sesame seeds!!
You see, the ultimate any time, any day meal! 🙂

Eggs + Carbs forever and ever and ever. Please. But really those yolks?? Yes, please!
Pure Genius,,, This recipe is like pieces of a puzzle that creates a masterpiece,
Thank you! xTieghan
So delicious and beautiful. We loved it and will make again. Just love all the flavors!
Thank you so much Michelle! xTieghan
We love this so much, we eat it pretty much weekly. It’s so much more than the sum of its parts!! We couldn’t find the sun dried tomato pesto the first time (and were too lazy to make it) so we used this roasted pepper bruschetta we found instead. Super good variation! We’ve since tried it with the pesto too and we think the pepper stuff is actually better.
Thank you so much Jenny! I am so glad you absolutely loved this recipe! xTieghan
This is my new go-to! Love, love, love it!
Thank you Kayla! xTieghan
Just tried this and it is fabulous! Substituted the sun dried pesto for plain pesto and was still really yummy ? thanks!
Thank you so much Jess! I am so glad you loved this!
Absolutely delishious. I made this for breakfast this morning and it really surprised us. The tang from the yogurt and sun dried tomatoes was a great complement to the eggs. I used pita bread and feta cheese since i didn’t have the specific ingredients it called for. In addition, i added fresh mint, and sprinkle of zakhtar (zaatar) and it was amazing. My son does’t even eat eggs, but he tried and loved it. This is a keeper. Thank you for sharing.
I am so happy to hear that! Thank you so much Mariam!

Thank you Jenna!
The link for naan goes to Dad’s Friday Night Pasta Dish.
Thank you for letting me know!
All fixed, sorry about that!
This was delicious. Did not have naan, spinach or paprika so used roti, kale and turmeric. I also omitted the goat cheese but I will have it again tomorrow with goat cheese.
I am so happy you liked it! I hope you like it with the goat cheese as well! Thanks Janet!
love eggs and saw this as part of a list from a more recent post, I also love egg dishes as dinner, haven’t seen a recipe like this before so had to click through and check it out! thank you for this!
Thanks Sabrina, so happy you liked it!
Just wanted to say thank you! This recipe has become such a staple in my life over the last few months that I’m not sure what I was doing before tbh. Eating peanut butter sandwiches, I guess?
Haha I am super glad you love it Alex! Thanks so much!
OMG! Absolutely wonderful. The only change I made was to add the spinach after the whites were set but before the yolks were done, covered the skillet, and took it off the heat while I put the other ingredients on the naan. I also broiled tomatoes to server alongside. The sweet of the tomatoes was a nice contrast to the variety of other flavors. My cutie pie said this was absolutely a keeper.
Sounds delicious! Glad you guys enjoyed!
Tried it and loved it. I used my favorite goat cheese (Humboldt fog) and a little more garlic. It turned out phenomenal my friends loved it. I love eggs but I guess not a much as you. I am gonna try it with soft poached eggs (my fav)
Awesome!! I hope you love it!! (:
Oh my god I can not get over how good this is. No words. Also it looked so pretty that I threw out my principle of not sharing food pictures on social media, and I have zero regrets.
HAHA yes!! So happy it was delicious and looked delicious!!
