If you read my Meal Planning Monday post last week, you will see that Thursday night's dinner was to be Mexican Veggie Hash from the Good Food magazine.
However I got home tired and hungry, opened the cupboard and found that I didn't have the right ingredients after all. So I made up a dish of my own, partly inspired by the recipe, partly by the ingredients I had to hand and partly by a breakfast dish called Chasse which I first read about in The Pauper's Cookbook by Jocasta Innes.
This makes a main course for two hungry people or a light lunch for four.
Jane's Veggie Hash
1 medium onion, finely chopped
350g cooked, halved tiny new potatoes
1 small can sweetcorn
1 large can red kidney beans
1 clove garlic, crushed
2 large tomatoes, diced
4 medium eggs
1 ripe avocado, chopped
1 tbs light olive oil and a small knob of butter
½ tsp chilli powder
1 tsp ground cumin
½ tsp dried oregano
Fry the onions in butter until soft in a wide, shallow pan with a lid then add the potatoes and fry until browned. Stir in the garlic and spices and cook for 1-2 minutes longer. Mix in the drained, rinsed beans and corn and heat through gently, then stir in the diced tomato. Make four hollows in the mixture and slide an egg into each, then cover and cook until the eggs are set to your preference- I like mine very hard which takes about 7 minutes. Sprinkle over the avocado and serve.
