Roasted Tomato, Cannellini Bean and Avocado Salad with Pan-fried Eggs

Tomatoes and white beans are a classic Italian combination that makes a perfect base for fried eggs. This dish is rich in anti-oxidants from the tomatoes and greens. Roasting the tomatoes adds a layer of sweetness to the dish, and the egg provides a protein boost at any time of day.

Roasted Tomato, Cannellini Bean and Avocado Salad with Pan-fried Eggs

Ingredients

  • 250 g red cherry tomatoes
  • 400 g can cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1 1/3 cups (60 g) baby rocket
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 4 eggs
  • freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Preheat the oven to 190°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper. Arrange the tomatoes on the tray. Roast for 15 minutes, until softened and lightly browned. Cool slightly.
  2. Combine the roasted tomatoes with the cannellini beans, avocado, rocket, chives and lemon juice. Arrange on four serving plates.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium–high heat. Crack the eggs into the pan and cook for 3 minutes, until the whites have set, or until done to your liking.
