  • 3 tablespoons olive oil divided
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 ½ teaspoon fresh thyme
  • 1 16 oz can chickpeas drained and rinsed
  • 3 teaspoons harissa paste
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 1 ½ cups tomato puree
  • 1 ½ cups petite diced tomatoes drained
  • 1 ½ teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 4 Eggland's Best Eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoon sumac


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a 10-inch, high-sided, oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and thyme and cook until softened and aromatic, but not browned, around 2 minutes.
  • Add the chickpeas and harissa paste and cook for 2 minutes, or until warm and thoroughly coated, then add the spinach, tomato puree, diced tomatoes, and red pepper flakes. Bring mixture to a simmer.
  • Create 4 small wells in the top of the mixture then carefully crack an egg into each well. Transfer skillet to oven and allow to cook for 5-6 minutes, or until the whites have set but the yolks are still runny. Remove from oven and sprinkle the eggs with sumac and drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Enjoy immediately.
