    becki in Israel's Note:

    This is very "Israeli", When we were young students, my friend (Israeli of Tunisian parent), used to make this for us in the evening. Since then I make it for my family as a change to fried eggs.Tip: you can prepare a lot of the sauce (before eggs are added) and keep bottled in the fridge or freeze in parts and then it is ready for use. Can also be used cold as a side salad (w/out eggs!) yummy to soak up the hot sauce with fresh baguette.

    2. 2
      Add garlic,add tomato paste or other options or mixture of both, cover and cook 8-10 minutes or until vegetables are blended and sauce thickens. Season with herbs above,lower heat.
    3. 3
      Make an indentation in vegetables and carefully add an egg to each one. Cover and cook over low heat 5 minutes, basting occasionally with juices or until eggs have set.
    4. 4
      If you prefer the eggs “scrambled” you can mix with a fork before covering frying pan,, you can add some feta cheese and mix in too if you like. Sprinkle freshly chopped parsley when serving.
    5. 5

      This was so good, and made for a hearty lunch with salad, fish and a light dessert. I really love this and will definetely be making this again.

      Excellent! We were looking to branch out on our "Middle Eastern" night and chose this dish. I didn't add any chili, but no complaints as my family isn't too fond of heat. I also used only one yellow bell pepper as it was all I had. Sprinkled with feta, served with dolmas, hummus, tzatziki, kalamata olives and quinoa. Thanks!

      This was really good. We made it with canned diced tomatoes instead of tomato paste and substituted a dash of cayenne for the chilli pepper (to make it more kid-friendly). It was a little heavy on the bell pepper for my taste, but otherwise very good. My husband absolutely loved it, too. Thanks for posting!
