LOVE life: low in saturated fat
Posh beans on toast
1 tbsp olive oil
1 leek, finely shredded
1 garlic clove, crushed
¼ tsp ground paprika
400g can chopped tomatoes
2 tsp maple syrup or honey
400g can butter beans, rinsed and drained
2 large eggs
2 tbsp soured cream
10 basil leaves, shredded
2 thick slices rye, wholemeal or seeded bread
1. Heat the oil in a pan. Sauté the leek over a medium heat for 5 minutes, until soft. Add the garlic and paprika, cook for 5 minutes, then add the tomatoes and maple syrup or honey; season. Simmer for 10 minutes, then add the beans; cook for 10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, poach the eggs in a pan of water. In a bowl, mix the soured cream with the basil; season.
3. Toast the bread. Remove the beans from heat and stir in the soured cream. Pile the beans onto the toast and top each with a poached egg. Serve at once.
Rich in protein, low in fat and a good source of fibre, these are a great standby. Blitz into soups or crush with sautéed leeks as a change from mash.
Endlessly versatile, eggs are an excellent, protein-rich alternative to meat and fish. They’re also a great source of vitamin B12.
