• 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large onion sliced thinly
  • 1 400g jar of red peppers, sliced thinly
  • 1 400g jar of chickpeas
  • 1 400g jar of chopped tomatoes
  • 1 large garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 heaped teaspoon of Harissa paste (add more if you like it hotter!)
  • 4 eggs
  • Crusty bread to serve
This dish is my take on Huevos Rancheros. It’s very easy to make, satisfying and economic. Using a can of chickpeas, ready roasted peppers and some harissa paste, you can have this family meal on a plate in next to no time for lunch or dinner – or even breakfast as it would be a fabulous cure for a hangover!
  1. Pre-heat your oven to 200C/180F/Gas 6. Heat the oil in a large oven proof frying pan. Fry your onions until softened, then add your peppers and fry for a few more minutes.
  2. Add your garlic and your tomatoes. Add your Harissa paste and finally your chickpeas. Season well and let this simmer gently for 5 minutes.
  3. Make 4 little wells in the chickpea mixture and crack an egg into each hole. Continue to fry until the bottoms set and then place the pan in the oven for 5 minutes until the eggs are just cooked through and still wobbly.
  4. Season the eggs and serve with crusty bread.
