ingredients

  • 400g new potatoes, thickly sliced
  • Low-calorie cooking spray
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, finely chopped
  • 1 orange pepper, deseeded and cut into small pieces
  • 400g can cannellini beans, drained and rinsed
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes with herbs
  • 300ml passata
  • 1-2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 100g spinach
  • 4 medium eggs
  • A handful of basil, to serve

method

  1. Boil the potatoes for 10 minutes, or until just tender. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, spray a large frying pan with low-calorie cooking spray and place over a medium-high heat. Add the onion, garlic and pepper and stir-fry for 5 minutes until softened.
  3. Stir in the potatoes and beans, then add the tomatoes, passata and Worcestershire sauce to taste. Season and simmer for 10-12 minutes, or until thickened.
  4. Stir through the spinach and allow to wilt. Make 4 shallow indents in the mixture and crack an egg into each one. Cover and cook gently for 5 minutes, or place under a medium-hot grill, until the eggs are set to your liking. Add a twist of black pepper and serve sprinkled with basil leaves.

Tip: Swap Worcestershire sauce for any Free vegetarian alternative to make the recipe vegetarian-friendly.
