Method

  1. Put a frying pan of water on to boil for the eggs, and toast the bread. Heat the oil in a pan, add the onion and gently cook for a few mins until it softens. Sprinkle the spices into the pan and stir briefly to toast them. Tip in the tomatoes and beans, and warm through.
  2. Turn down the heat under the frying pan so that the water is just simmering, then crack in the eggs and gently poach them until the whites are firm but the yolks are still runny. Pile the beans onto the toast (you can butter the slices or leave them plain), place the eggs on top and sprinkle with extra cumin. If you have any fresh herbs around like coriander or parsley, you can sprinkle them on, too.

I have made this before but used Chorizo instead of the tomatoes, render the fat from the chorizo first and cook the onions in that, then add the spice (I use chilli too) and the beans.. AMAZING!! Served with a baked potato with melted Compte cheese on top is the tastiest, simple supper I know!

Delicious! Fast and easy for breakfast, lunch, snack...we have it any time of the day. Still very nice without the ground cumin and coriander.

Where is the spice supposed to come from?! Cumin and Coriander...not in my house! Nice with some chopped chillies/Chipotle sauce in :)

Nice basis with the spices - didn't add any extra tomato and made scrambled eggs instead but nice flavours!
