A lovely meal added to our menu

 Eggs in (on) tomato sauce with Chickpeas and Spinach

The original (and now adapted) recipe for this can be found here.

My adaptions are, for 1/2 the original recipe:

1 can of crushed tomatoes. 1 can of chickpeas.  50g Feta cheese cut into small cubes.
1 tablespoon tomato puree and a good dash of soy sauce. 

We cook the recipe up until the egg stage. Add the tomato puree, soy sauce and Feta cheese. Whilst this carries on cooking slowly, we poach the eggs, two at a time in a separate pan.

Half the mixture is served up for DB with his eggs, then I cook my eggs and serve:


I accidentally opened butter beans instead of chickpeas but they work just as well!

    1. It is so adaptable and quite cheap but healthy.

  2. Sounds a bit like shakshuka, although for that the eggs are cooked in the dish instead of separately. I like butterbeans, especially mashed with herbs.

    1. They are meant to be cooked in the sauce but we prefer them poached.

    1. We found the original recipe a bit bland as it is low calorie hence the additions.
