  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Toss the potatoes in a large roasting tin with 1 tbsp oil; season. Cook for 25 mins, until crisp and golden.
  2. Meanwhile, put the peppers, cannellini beans, cumin, chilli powder, garlic, lemon zest and remaining oil into a food processor and whizz until smooth. Season to taste. This will make double the amount of paste needed for this recipe (see tip).
  3. Bring a pan of water to the boil, add the vinegar, then turn down to a very gentle simmer and break each egg into the water. Cook for 3-4 mins, until cooked to your liking, then remove with a slotted spoon.
  4. In a bowl, toss the potatoes with the spinach to wilt slightly. To serve, mix in half of the pepper and bean paste and divide between 4 plates. Top each with a poached egg and scatter over the feta and chopped mint.

Tip: Leftover paste will keep in a sterilised jar* for up to 2 weeks. Stir through pasta or simply spread on toast.
