- Makes: 4 servings
Serving Size: 1 cup chickpea mixture and 1 egg
- Active Time: 20 minutes | Total Time: 20 minutes
- 1 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 2 tablespoons olive oil plus 2 teaspoons, divided
- 1 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 teaspoon curry powder
- ¼ teaspoon smoked paprika
- 1 orange bell pepper, diced
- 1 Anaheim chile pepper, seeds removed, minced
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 pint cherry tomatoes, halved
- 1 15-ounce can low-sodium chickpeas, rinsed
- ½ teaspoon salt
- 1 cup baby spinach
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 4 large eggs
- 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
- Toast cumin seeds and mustard seeds in a large dry skillet over medium heat, shaking occasionally, until the seeds begin to crackle and pop, about 5 minutes. Add 2 tablespoons olive oil, turmeric, curry powder, and paprika; cook, stirring frequently, for 45 seconds.
- Add bell pepper, chile pepper, onion, garlic, and tomatoes; cook until the onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
- Add chickpeas and salt; stir to combine. Cook until the tomatoes become soft, 5 to 7 minutes. Add spinach and lemon juice; cook, stirring, until the spinach has wilted, about 1 minute. Cover and remove from heat.
- Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Crack eggs into the pan; cook until the whites are set but the yolks are still runny, 4 to 5 minutes, or until desired doneness.
- To serve, divide the chickpea mixture among 4 bowls. Top each with an egg; sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.
