2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1 onion, chopped

3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced

1 15-ounce can no-salt-added chickpeas, drained and rinsed

2 teaspoons ground cumin

Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

2 14.5-ounce cans petite diced tomatoes with green chiles

8 large eggs

2 pieces pita bread

1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt

1/4 cup hummus

2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro and/or mint


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the chickpeas, cumin and a pinch each of salt and pepper; stir well to coat. Add the tomatoes and 1/3 cup water. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 20 minutes.
  2. Make 8 wells in the sauce and crack an egg into each; run the edge of a spatula through the whites to distribute them, being careful not to break the yolks. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the egg whites are just set, 8 to 10 minutes. (The eggs will continue cooking after you remove them from the oven.) Meanwhile, wrap the pita bread in foil and warm in the oven, about 5 minutes; cut into wedges.
  3. Combine the yogurt, hummus and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle the herbs over the eggs; season with salt and pepper. Serve with the pita bread and hummus sauce.
