Eggs in Purgatory


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon harissa
1 tablespoon tomato paste
2 large red bell peppers, diced
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 teaspoons chopped fresh garlic
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 can (28 ounces) crushed OR diced tomatoes, undrained
6 large eggs
1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
1/3 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese


Combine olive oil, tomato paste, harissa, red peppers, onion, garlic, cumin and salt in a large skillet. Cook, covered, on medium heat 10 minutes or until peppers and onion are soft, stirring occasionally.

Stir in canned tomatoes. Heat to simmering. Cook, uncovered, 10 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly.

Make 6 indentations in the sauce. Gently break 1 egg into each.

Simmer, uncovered, about 10 minutes or until the whites are set and the yolks are still slightly soft.

Serve the eggs in the sauce with the yogurt and cheese on the side.
