Fried Eggs with Spicy Tomato Harissa Sauce may become your new go-to comfort food!
Harissa is a versatile Tunisian condiment, typically sold in tubes or jars, yet it can easily be prepared at home: Blend red chili peppers into a thick paste with the addition of garlic, olive oil, and aromatic spices such as cumin, caraway and coriander. Depending on the heat level of the peppers, a spoonful of harissa can go a long way!
Fried Eggs in a Spicy Tomato and Harissa Sauce with Crusty Bread
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1/2 onion, minced
- 14.5 oz can tomatoes
- 2 tbsp prepared Harissa, add more if you like it spicier!
- 4 eggs
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 tsp fresh chopped parsley, chives or cilantro
Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium heat, add the oil then the onion and saute 2 to 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and harissa. Increase heat to medium-high, and simmer 3 to 4 minutes to reduce the liquid.
Now, turn 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. Garnish with chopped parsley, chives or cilantro. Serve with good, crusty bread!
