DIRECTIONS

  • Cut each tomato in half and squeeze lightly to press out the seeds and juice. Chop the flesh coarsely and place in a saucepan with 2 tbsps of the olive oil and the bay leaf.
  • Cook over a brisk heat for 15-30 minutes until all the moisture has evaporated and the mixture has dried out, almost to a paste. Set aside to cool slightly.
  • Meanwhile pick the leaves from the sprig of thyme and place in a bowl with the garlic and basil. Break in the eggs, season wth salt and pepper and beat with a fork. Add the tomato and mix well.
  • Heat a frying pan over a high heat and add the remaining olive oil, swirling it round the pan. Add the egg mixture and cook, stirring continuosly with a fork in a circular motion, until the eggs have set evenly but are still creamy.
  • Leave the pan over the heat undisturbed for 30 seconds to brown the bottom. Remove it from the heat, turn out of the pan onto a plate and serve with some black Nice olives.
