  • 3 tablespoons of tomato puree

Heat the oven to 180 deg.

Gently fry the onion, garlic and chilli in the olive oil in an oven-proof frying pan, or any pan will do as you can transfer to an ovenproof dish.

Add the rest of the ingredients except the feta and eggs; simmer for 15 mins to let the flavours develop.

Either leave it in the pan or transfer to a shallow ovenproof dish then make four dips in the mixture and crack an egg into each one.

Place the pan or dish in the oven for about 5-6 mins or until the egg whites are set but the yolks remain soft.

Serve with crumbled feta or sour cream, a squeeze of fresh lime, and a green salad.
