  3. In a medium bowl, mix chopped tomato and chickpeas. Add onions and season with salt and pepper.
  4. On a sheet tray line 12, 3 inch ramekin dishes. Spoon the chickpea mixture evenly into all ramekin dishes, leaving a little room at the top of each. You can also use a lined muffin tin.
  5. Crack an egg on top of each individual ramekin dish. Season lightly with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake in oven for 18-20 minutes or until egg white springs back when touched.
  7. If desired, sprinkle a little cheddar cheese on each dish prior to serving. Serve warm or at room temperature.

Chef Tips

If you don’t want to make 12 portions, halve the recipe and bag & freeze the leftover chickpeas for another meal.

In winter, use cherry tomatoes for more flavor.

Try a sprinkle a little paprika on the egg before baking.
