Ingredients for making Moroccan-Inspired Eggs

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 stalks scallions, sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 (14 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper, or to taste
  • sea salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • 4 large eggs
  • 3 tablespoons roughly chopped fresh cilantro

Directions for making Moroccan-Inspired Eggs

  1. Heat olive oil in a small cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add scallions and saute until softened, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in garlic and cumin.
  2. Add tomatoes, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Taste and add honey if tomatoes aren’t sweet enough. Bring to a simmer and cook until the mixture thickens a bit, about 15 minutes.
  3. Crack 1 egg into each quarter of the skillet. Spread the whites with a fork so that they cover the surface evenly. Simmer until the eggs are still soft inside but not runny, about 5 minutes, or to your liking. Serve garnished with cilantro.

Cook’s Note:

  • Regular onions or shallots are great instead of scallions.
