Serves: 2-4
Prep time: 10 min
Cook time: 15 min

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 dried red chilies
  • 1 sprig rosemary or 2 tsp dried
  • 1 tablespoon Mutti tomato paste
  • 28 oz can Mutti Tomatoes, drained
  • 15.5 oz can Chickpeas, rinsed
  • 15.5 oz can coconut milk, for coconut cream
  • 4 eggs
  • salt salt + pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Heat oil over medium heat, add garlic, rosemary and dried chilies. When garlic becomes golden (about 1-3 minutes) and oil is infused with flavor, remove rosemary and dried chilies. Discard chilies, but save rosemary sprig to use as garnish.
  2. Lightly fried tomato paste in oil then add chickpeas and drained tomatoes. Carefully break up tomatoes with spoon into bite size-ish pieces.
  3. Scoop coconut cream (the solidified mass on top of a can of full fat coconut milk) and add to tomatoes and chickpeas season lightly with sea salt. Simmer for 10 minutes. Make 4 indents in sauce to crack eggs into. Season each egg with cracked pepper and pinch of salt. Cover and let simmer until egg whites are cooked fully but yolks are still runny.
  4. While eggs are cooking, pick leaves off of the cooled fried rosemary stem. After eggs whites are set garnish with leaves. Serve over with pita or bread, or over grains like brown rice, farro, and quinoa.
