Eggs in a Vegetable Mulligatawny Sauce

The other day, I made a thick, creamy and spicy vegetable Mulligatawny soup. Delicious the first day, it tastes even better the second day when the flavors have mingled longer. The second day is then a great opportunity to use it as a sauce for serving hard-boiled eggs in, and makes for a delightfully simple and attractive dish.

Nice Leftover Tuesdays creation! Looks like it would also be a good way to use us some eggs...

Soup always tastes better on the second day, in fact there is a restaurant here that advertise second day soup. That looks like a tasty accompliment to the eggs! The eggs are a good colour too. The free range, organic eggs we have been buying are a bit tastless and don't have that lovely coloured yolk!

It was a tasty dish indeed. Whenever possible, I purchase local free range, organic eggs. I very much value my supplier. You should ask your supplier what they feed their chickens.

Lisa, who does supply your local free range eggs? In London area I mean.

Hi Heather;

Whenever possible, I buy my eggs from Grains and Beans on 268 Piccadilly Street, just off Richmond Street. For that matter, I buy most of my food from there, including organic dairy, grains, beans, and anything else Conrad stocks. I highly recommend you visit the store.
