How can you possibly go wrong with this vegetarian recipe. It has beans and eggs, with some mushrooms thrown in and is the easiest thing to make. I usually have it on my vegetarian nights and I have refined the original recipe that I got from Good Foods.

  • Make two dips in the mixture with the back of a ladle and break in one egg in each of the dips. Cover the pan and cook for 5 to 8 minutes till the eggs look poached but the yokes are still runny.
