It is fairly low in calories (315 kcal per portion) yet really filling and full of interesting nutrient. Rich in vegetable and fibres, high in protein, low in saturate fat - it ticks all the box of a healthy meal.
Ingredients (serve 2-3 people)
1 large red onion, chopped
600g tinned tomatoes (or frozen tomato)
½ tsp smoked paprika
1 garlic clove, finely crushed
1 red pepper, chopped
200g cannellini beans, drained and rinsed (or chickpeas)
Salt and pepper
In a heavy based pan with a lid, gently fry the red onion until soft. Add the pepper, paprika and garlic in, give it a stir before adding the tomatoes. Season.
Cook it to a gentle simmer until the red pepper is cooked through (15 mins). Add the cannellini beans and cook for 5 more minutes. Make little wells in which you break the eggs and cover with lid – cook for 5 to 10 mins until eggs are poached.
Sprinkle with chives and ground pepper. Serve immediately.
