  • 1 teaspoon cumin seeds, crushed
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 3 Garlic cloves, peeled (whole)
  • 1 medium onion, peeled & halved
  • 30g olive oil
  • 500 g ripe tomatoes, diced
  • 30 g tomato paste
  • 10 g honey
  • 1 teaspoon cider vinegar
  • 1 tin of borlotti beans, drained and rinsed
  • 115 g feta cheese, cut into generous bite-sized cubes
  • 6 eggs
  • Salad leaves (optional)
  • Toasted sourdough (optional)

Method

  1. Place spices into TM bowl and grind on speed 10 for 1 minute.
  2. Add the garlic and chop on speed 8 for 3 seconds. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  3. Add onion and chop on speed 5 for 3 seconds. Scrape down sides of bowl.
  4. Add olive oil and cook on 100° deg for 5 minutes on speed 1
  5. Add tomatoes, tomato paste, honey and vinegar, cook for 15 minutes on 100°C speed 1
  6. Add the beans and cook on reverse, 100°C, speed 1 for 5 minutes
  7. Pour the tomato mixture into a large frying pan and press the cubes of feta into the tomato sauce
  8. With the back of a spoon, make 6 indentations in the sauce. Crack an egg into each indentation, then drag a spatula gently through the egg whites so it mingles a bit with the tomato sauce, being careful not to disturb the yolks
