Recipe

I have always loved Mediterranean egg dishes like this that combine hearty beans, tomatoes, veggies, and fried eggs. Whether for breakfast, lunch, or dinner they are the ultimate comfort food and perfect with some crusty bread for dipping. This version uses chickpeas, whole canned tomatoes, and spinach combined with garlic, onion, cumin, and paprika. It's warm, slightly smoky, and packed with delicious flavor.
