Baked eggs with chilli tomato chickpeas

The marriage between eggs and beans is a very happy one – this is kinda like baked beans and fried eggs with attitude! Wholesome, filling and full of taste, this is sensational. Feel free to add other veg such as spinach or finely chopped courgette.
Serves: 2 • Prep: 10 mins • Cook: 25 mins • Easy 
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 small/medium red onion finely chopped
  • 1 clove of garlic peeled and crushed
  • 1 small red chilli deseeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tin of chickpeas or any tinned beans you have in stock!
  • 3 tablespoons of tomato puree
  • 1 tablespoon of paprika
  • 1 teaspoon of sugar
  • sea salt – this needs good seasoning
  • 4 free range organic eggs
  • crumbled feta or sour cream to serve
  • 1 lime
Heat the oven to 180 deg.

Gently fry the onion, garlic and chilli in the olive oil in an oven-proof frying pan, or any pan will do as you can transfer to an ovenproof dish.

Add the rest of the ingredients except the feta and eggs; simmer for 15 mins to let the flavours develop.

Either leave it in the pan or transfer to a shallow ovenproof dish then make four dips in the mixture and crack an egg into each one.

Place the pan or dish in the oven for about 5-6 mins or until the egg whites are set but the yolks remain soft.

Serve with crumbled feta or sour cream, a squeeze of fresh lime, and a green salad.
Nutrition info
One of the most important parts of the body is the gut. Most people underestimate its effect on their whole system, including brain function. Such is the importance of the gut that it's often referred to as the second brain. Chickpeas provide loads of insoluble fibre, that means they reach the large intestine without being broken down too much and it's there that they are worked on and turned into short chain fatty acids which the colon cells feed from and stay optimally active and healthy. This is not to mention the powerhouses that are eggs which are full of B vitamins and provide minerals and Omega 3 fats. The tomatoes and onion, garlic and chilli will boost immunity and help to fight cell damage.
