Recipe Notes:


  • AIP This breakfast is probably not the best option for those of you following an autoimmune protocol. Check out some some AIP friendly breakfast ideas here. If eggs are ok, but you’re avoiding nightshades, I recommend to sauté the onion with celery, carrot, zucchini, garlic and some cumin instead and once softened, add the eggs.
  • Onions can be replaced with green leeks or green onions.

Lecho or Lecco is a traditional central European dish of stewed onions, peppers and tomatoes with garlic and paprika. There are variations from country to country but this is the way my dad used to make our eggs when I was little. Zucchini is also often added to the mix. By adding the eggs, we have a complete dish with protein, fats and good carbs.

  • Method :
    1. Heat olive oil in a medium skillet and add the onion. Sauté for a minute and add the red pepper and salt. Stir and cook over medium heat, covered with a lid, for about 3 minutes.
    2. Then add the tomatoes, zucchini, garlic, paprika and black pepper and stir through. Cover with a lid and cook for 2 more minutes, stirring half way. Finally add the eggs and stir through with the mixture for about a minute, until cooked through. Serve with some chopped fresh coriander or other herbs of choice.
