Method

1/ Heat one tablespoon of oil in a non-stick pan over medium heat. Add the greens and cook, stirring frequently, until they begin to wilt (about 10 minutes).
2/ Add the garlic and tomatoes and continue to cook until the garlic begins to brown (about five minutes). Divide the greens among four plates. Wipe out the pan.
3/ Return the pan to a medium heat, add the remaining oil and crack the eggs into the pan. Add one tablespoon of water and cover the pan with a lid for about three minutes. Remove the lid and continue cooking until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny (about one minute). Top each plate with an egg.
