Baked egg, sweet potato and black bean hash

A one-pan dish that can be enjoyed at breakfast, lunch or dinner. Lightly dressed salad leaves are all that is needed alongside.

  • Preparation time: 10 minutes
  • Cooking time: 55 minutes

Serves: 4


2 large sweet potatoes (about 600g), scrubbed clean and sliced into thick wedges

1 tbsp olive oil

400g can black beans, drained and rinsed

270g cherry tomatoes, halved

2 jalapeno chillies, finely sliced (deseeded, if liked)

28g pack coriander, stalks finely chopped and leaves torn

4 eggs

1 lime, zest and 1⁄2 juice


1. Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C, gas mark 6. Toss the sweet potato with the oil and scatter in a large, ovenproof frying pan; season. Roast for 40-45 minutes, until tender and browned at the edges.

2. Using an oven glove, carefully remove the pan from the oven. Turn the grill to high (about 250 ̊C). Toss the black beans, tomatoes, chilli, coriander stalks and most of the leaves into the sweet potato; season.

3. Make 4 wells in the mixture and crack in the eggs; grill for 5-8 minutes, until the eggs are cooked to your liking. Scatter over the lime zest and juice, and the remaining coriander leaves. Serve with the remaining lime, cut into wedges, for squeezing over.
