Indian spiced chickpeas with Yolk Folk poached eggs

For two servings you will need;

  • 4 spring onions
  • 1 yellow pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 10 ml coconut oil
  • 1 tsp crushed cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp crushed coriander seeds
  • ½ tsp ground turmeric
  • 3 tomatoes
  • handful of fresh coriander, chopped
  • 400g can chickpeas
  • ½ tsp vegetable bouillon powder
  • 4 Yolk Folk poached eggs

What you need to do;

  1. Slice the spring onions, chop the yellow pepper, crush and chop the garlic and add to a pan with the coconut oil and chilli flakes.
  2. Put the pan on a medium heat and let the vegetables soften for 5 minutes.
  3. Fill a kettle with water and bring to the boil.
  4. Add the cumin and coriander seeds, stir and cook for a further minute.
  5. Roughly chop the tomatoes and add to the pan with half of the fresh coriander.
  6. Drain the chickpeas - but keep the water!  Stir the chickpeas into the pan.
  7. Add the bouillon powder to the pan and stir well.  Add enough of the chickpea water to loosen the mixture and simmer gently for three minutes.
  8. Pour the boiled water into a deep bowl and add the four Yolk Folk poached eggs, in their pouches.  Leave for three minutes.
  9. Share the chickpea mixture between two bowls, remove the eggs from their pouches and top each bowl with two Yolk Folk poached eggs.
  10. Sprinkle with the remaining fresh coriander and enjoy.
