  1. Step 1

    Heat the oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. If you don’t have a non-stick muffin tray, line the 12 holes with lightly oiled muffin cases that have been smoothed out.
  2. Step 2

    Heat a large non-stick pan and fry the mushrooms over a medium heat, covered, for 8 mins until they’re smaller in size, then remove the lid. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for a few minutes. Tip into a large bowl. Add the spinach to the pan, cover and cook for 5 mins until wilted, then squeeze out the water and put in the bowl with the mushrooms.
  3. Step 3

    Add a good grating of nutmeg and break in the eggs. Whisk to combine, add the anchovies and whisk again. Divide the mixture between the muffin cases, then bake for 12-15 mins until set. Peel off the cases while warm.
  4. Step 4

    Meanwhile, tip the beans, corn, onion, olives and parsley into a bowl, then toss with the oil and balsamic vinegar. Serve three muffins per person, warm or cold with the salad. Will keep chilled for up to three days.
