Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and saute until golden. Toss in the garlic and cook another 2 minutes. Add the merguez and saute until almost cooked through, about 3 minutes.
  2. Lower the heat to medium-low and add the Ras el Hanout, Spanish smoked paprika and salt. Stir to combine and cook for a minute to lightly toast the spices. Add the tomatoes. Turn up the heat to medium and cook until the mixture has thickened slightly, about 5 minutes.
  3. Crack the eggs over the mixture, cover and cook until the whites set, but the yolks are still soft.
  4. Divide the eggs and ragout among four warmed bowls using a large spoon. Top with a sprinkling of cilantro and about 1 teaspoon of Harissa for each.
  5. Serve immediately with crusty bread.
