Serves 4

Prep 10 minutes

Cook 20 minutes

Pan Size 30cm



4-6 eggs (I love using Yallamumdi Farm eggs)

400g can crushed tomatoes

400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 large brown onion, sliced

1 medium eggplant, chopped

1 medium zucchini, chopped

1 small red capsicum chopped

1 small green or yellow capsicum chopped

¼ cup extra virgin olive oil


½ teaspoon chilli flakes

½ teaspoon pepper

1 teaspoon sea salt

1 teaspoon dried marjoram or oregano

Serving options:

4 slices of toasted bread, gluten-free

1 avocado, diced

½ cup crumbled feta

Handful of fresh basil leaves


1. Prepare the vegetables: In a wide pan and over medium heat, add the olive oil, onion, and eggplant and sauté for 3 minutes. Then add the zucchini, red capsicum, and yellow or green capsicum and sauté for a further 2 minutes, stirring occasionally until the vegetables begin to soften.

2. Cook the sauce: Next add the tomatoes, chickpeas, chilli flakes, marjoram (or oregano), sea salt, and pepper and stir through to combine well. Add a quarter of a cup of water to the can of tomatoes, swirl it around to collect any leftover tomato bits, and add it to the pan as well. Lightly simmer, cover with a lid, and cook for 10 minutes over a low heat, checking halfway and giving it a stir.

3. Add the eggs: With the back of a spoon, make 4-6 wells in the sauce and crack an egg into each well, season with sea salt and pepper, and cover the pan for 3-5 minutes to allow the eggs to set softly or firmly, as preferred.

4. To serve: Remove from the heat, serve with toasted gluten-free bread, and garnish with fresh basil leaves, feta, diced avocado, and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil.
