Vegetarian chilli cheese fries

    45 min

    One of my ultimate comfort foods. Chips with a vegetarian chilli, topped with melted cheese and a soft fried egg. Where the runny yolk adds a further richness to this cheerful dish.

    1. Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan and saute the onions, garlic and green chilli and add the paprika to the mix. Cook for 4 minutes on a low heat
    2. Pour in the passata. Throw in the ground cumin and salt. Add the tomato ketchup and stir well. Let the tomato sauce cook for 5 minutes on a low heat
    3. Place the Quorn® mince into the tomato sauce, add water and stir well. Simmer for 15 minutes on a low heat and cover, stirring occasionally. If you require the sauce to be a bit runny then add a little more water than stated.
    4. Meanwhile, prepare the oven chips according to packet instructions.
    5. Just a couple of minutes before the chilli and chips are ready, pan fry the two eggs in a drizzle of oil. Cook till whites are set but the yolk remains runny.

    The egg made an extremely nice addition to the "Cheesy Chilli Chips". With a couple of slight variations this is very nice. Replaced ketchup with puree, Quorn with Lean Minced Beef (Eggs do not = vegetarian chilli). Also used grated cheese rather than sliced.  -  22 Jul 2013

    Added a few more chillies, tomato purée instead of sauce and more pasata instead of adding water (also added loads more cheese than suggested) and it was amazzzzzing!  -  08 May 2014
