- 12.3g (3.5g saturated)
- 17.2g (1.8g sugars)
- 1 fat garlic clove
- 3 tbsp Greek yogurt
- Juice ½ lemon
- 2 x 400g tins chickpeas
- Splash vegetable stock
- 150g frozen spinach, defrosted
- 2-3 tsp harissa, to taste
- 12 pitted black olives
- 4 large free-range eggs
- Handful fresh parsley leaves, plus extra to garnish
- Crush the garlic into a bowl. Mix in the yogurt and lemon juice. Season and set aside.
- Drain and rinse the chickpeas, then tip into a pan. Add the stock and simmer over a medium heat for 4 minutes. Drain the chickpeas, return to the pan, then add the spinach and harissa. Coarsely chop the olives, then add to the pan.
- Meanwhile, bring a large, deep pan of water to the boil. Lower the heat to a simmer, crack the eggs one by one into a ramekin, then slide each one gently into the pan. Poach for 3-4 minutes until the whites have set.
- Chop the parsley, then stir three-quarters through the chickpeas. Divide among 4 plates, then top each with a poached egg. Season, sprinkle with the remaining parsley, then serve with the yogurt.
