Chop the celery, carrot, onion, yellow capsicum, basil and coriander.


Heat the butter in a large saucepan set over a medium heat. Add the celery, carrot, onion, capsicum and herbs and gently sauté until softened. Add the tomatoes, tomato purée, spices and water. Simmer over a low heat for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Allow to cool and then place in a blender. Blitz until smooth.


Prepare a grill or barbecue to a medium heat.


To make the boerewors patties, remove the sausage meat from the casing and place in a bowl. Mix the sausage meat well. Place the meat on a surface and shape the meat into patties using a round cookie cutter. Press the meat down as closely as possible to make sure it does not come apart when cooking.


Place on the grill and cook for 5 minutes a side or until the patties are done.


Slice the English muffins in half and place on the grill. Toast for a minute or two on each



Poach the eggs in boiling water for 3-4 minutes or until your liking.


Place a large frying pan over a high heat. Add the spinach and a splash of water and place the lid over the pan. Cook for 5 minutes or until the spinach has wilted.


To assemble, divide the spinach between the English muffins, place a boerewors patty over the spinach and top with the chakalaka. Place a poached egg over each muffin.


Serve immediately.
