This is the type of dish you can have for breakfast, lunch or dinner (Hello Meatless Mondays). Serve with with crusty bread, or any type of grain and call it a meal or double the portion and skip the starch if you are following a low carb or paleo diet.
1/2 tsp olive oil
2 tbsp minced red onion
14.5 oz can petite tomatoes
2 tbsp prepared Harissa (I used Mina) or more if you like it spicier
4 large eggs
salt and pepper, to taste
1 tsp fresh chopped parsley or chives
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, add the oil then the onion and saute until golden, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes, harissa, salt and pepper and increase the heat to medium-high and simmer until the liquid reduces a bit, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, carefully add the eggs, salt and pepper and cover. Cook until the top of the eggs set, about 4 to 5 minutes, or to your liking. Top with chopped fresh parsley or chives and serve.
