Serves: 1



  • 1 large wholemeal pita pocket
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • ¼ large onion
  • 65g cannellini beans
  • ¼ green chilli
  • ¼ medium red capsicum
  • 100g canned diced tomatoes
  • 1 large egg
  • Sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place a sheeting of baking paper in a small oven proof bowl and place the pita pocket in to make a pita bowl.
  2. Add olive oil to a non-stick frying pan and heat over medium heat. Add the onion and stir-fry for a couple of minutes, until softened. Add the cannellini beans, chilli and capsicum and continue to stir-fry for a further two minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for another three minutes or until the mixture has slightly reduced.
  3. Scoop the bean and capsicum mixture into your pita bowl and make a well in the centre. Crack the egg into the well and bake for approximately 20 minutes or until the eggs have been cooked to your liking. Serve and enjoy.
