  • medium onion, peeled and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped

  • 1 medium red capsicum, seeded and diced
  • 440 g can salt-reduced baked beans
  • 800 g can no-added-salt diced tomatoes
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika
  • pepper
  • 125 g baby spinach leaves, chopped
  • 1/2 punnet cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 6 eggs

  1. Spray a large frypan with oil and place on medium to high heat.
  2. Add onion and cook for 3 minutes until softened.
  3. Add garlic, mushrooms and capsicum and cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Mix through baked beans, canned tomatoes, cumin, paprika and pepper.
  5. Increase heat and to bring to the boil then simmer for 5 minutes until slightly thickened.
