To make the sauce, sweat off the onions and garlic in olive oil for a few minutes until soft. Then add the rest of the sauce ingredients bring to the boil, then simmer for 1 hr until sauce is reduced, vegetables are soft and the sauce has developed a natural sweetness. Add in the black beans.


To bake the eggs split the sauce mixture in to 4 x earthenware dish, make a dip in the middle of the sauce. Crack 1 duck egg into each, grate over the cheese. Place in an 180 oven for 10mins or so until the white has set but the yokes are still runny. Sprinkle over coriander to serve.
