*Preheat the oven to 180degrees C*
To make your boujee beans..
- Firstly you want to make your beans and allow them to simmer for a while to make that thick oozy sauce. Chop 1.5 of your onions into cubes and soften them on a low heat in a saucepan.
- Next finely cut 3 cloves of garlic and your chillies, and add to the onions in the saucepan. Continue to cook on a low heat.
- Next add your spices to your onion mix. The spices I used are above, feel free to use as much as little as you want in your beans.
- Next add your 2 cans of beans, tinned tomatoes, a squeeze of tomato puree and a small dash of water.
- Simmer these on a low heat whilst you prepare the rest of your dish.
To make the guacamole..
- Cut your avocado in half and extract the stone. Spoon out all of the avocado and chop it up inside a bowl.
- Next VERY finely chop half of your onion and your cherry tomatoes.
- Finely chop 1 of your cloves of garlic and add this, the onion and the tomatoes to your chopped avocado. Mix this all together firmly with a fork.
- Add some pepper into the mix and a squeeze of half a lime. Leave in the fridge until serving.
- Cook in the oven your hash browns and sausages according to the instructions on their packaging.
- When these bits are nearly cooked, heat up a large griddle/ ridged frying pan. Also heat up a pan of boiling water on the hob for your eggs.
- Chop your halloumi into mm thin strips. Add the halloumi to the frying pan and cook on one side.
- Cook your eggs in the boiling water for 4 minutes. Additionally turn your halloumi over to cook both sides of the halloumi.
- Firstly place a spoonful of your spicy beans in the centre of the plate and spread evenly.
- Next add one of your hash browns into the centre of the beans.
- Place diagonally your chipolatta sausage on top of the hash brown.
- On top of this I placed a dollop of the guacamole.
- Next chop your strips of halloumi into thin strands and place a few of those in a tipi shape around your guacamole.
- Finally your egg should be ready to place as the centre piece on the top of the dish. Garnish with a sprig of rosemary.
