If you prefer you can poach an egg and place on top of the mixture.

You can also make this for a light lunch, add a diced carrot and capsicum, sneaking in your vegetables without really trying.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 onion, diced
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 can chickpeas, drained and washed
  • 1 large handful baby spinach leaves
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 large tomato, diced
  • 1/4 chorizo sausage (or smoked bacon)
  • Sprinkle smoked paprika
  • Sprinkle cumin

Method

  1. In a small non-stick pan sauté your onions in olive oil for 5 minutes.  Add diced chorizo sausage and cook until chorizo has browned.
  2. Add chickpeas, garlic, chopped tomato, water paprika and cumin.  Season with salt and pepper to your liking.  Simmer for 5 minutes on low heat.  If you need to add a little more water then please do.  Add spinach leaves and simmer until wilted through the mixture,  you may need to cover with a lid.
  3. Meanwhile boil your eggs to your liking.  For perfect eggs you place your 2 eggs into a small pot filled with water.  Bring to boil and then turn down to a simmer, cook for 3 minutes for medium, 4 minutes for med and 5-6 minutes for hard boiled.  Peel once cooked.
  4. Place your chickpea mixture into a serving dish and once you have peeled your eggs place on top.
