I actually discovered this dish when I was living in Queenstown and it soon became my favorite breakfast/any time of the day meals at my local Cafe; The Grange at Lake Hayes Estate. So I decided to give it a crack one cold, wet, dreary Sunday morning recently, and OMG…it is SO easy and SO tasty!

This dish has Jewish/Libyan/Algerian origins with the flavors of cumin and added heat with chilli. So delicious and actually quite easy!It is a beautiful, tasty, healthy start to any day, and the perfect brunch dish for cold winter lazy Sunday mornings. 



1 x can tomatoes

1 punnet cherry tomatoes halved

1 cup chopped button mushrooms

½ onion chopped

1 red capsicum finely chopped

2 tsps (or more) ground cumin

Fry the capsicum, onion and mushrooms in a little olive oil, then add the can of tomatoes and halved cherry tomatoes.

Crack the eggs 1 by 1 onto of the tomatoe mixture and add a lid to the frypan. Cook until the eggs are the desired texture, soft of longer for hard eggs,
