    This was beautiful but extremely hot and spicy due to the very hot chilli, which I shall use a great deal less of next time. It really needed the sourdough toast with it to relieve the very hot spice. It would be fine for Vegans if the eggs were simply left out. I will cook it again and freeze half before adding and cooking the eggs. Enjoyed it !

    This went down a treat with the family & is really healthy. Tasted far better than expected. I used half the amount of chilli though to make it edible for the kids
