Eggs make the world go-round. We love them! On a Meatless Monday, eggs are a fantastically wonderful way to consume the protein your body needs to feel full without the fluff. And, what a great way to do them! The rustic nature of this dish lends itself to the cool evenings we have in the late spring. Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 cups diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup tomato paste
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped

Preparation:

In a cast iron or heavy skillet over high heat, drizzle olive oil and saute onions and garlic for 4-6 minutes. Your onions should be transluscent.

Reduce heat to low, then add pepper, tomatoes, tomato paste and spices and simmer for about 10 minutes. Preheat oven to 350-degrees.

Watch liquid level (cover if need be or add a bit of water) because you want a fairly liquid base for your eggs. Now, gently crack your eggs into 4 corners of your skillet, a couple of inches away from the edge.

Place skillet on rack in middle of your oven and bake for 15-20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes then serve!
