5 tablespoons olive oil, divided

2 medium Spanish onions, diced 

2 red bell peppers, diced 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

1 teaspoon cumin seeds  

4 large ripe tomatoes, diced  

1 tablespoon honey 

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

4 eggs 

1/3 cup crumbled feta 

1 teaspoon za'atar spice

Grilled pita, for serving 


  1. Heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onions, red pepper, garlic and cumin seeds and saute for a few minutes. Add the diced tomatoes and honey and season with salt and pepper. Cook on medium heat until the ingredients come together into a light sauce, about 10 minutes.
  2. Break the eggs directly into the sauce, cover and poach just until the eggs whites are cooked and the yolks are still runny, 8 to 10 minutes.
  3. Garnish with some feta, the remaining olive oil and za'atar spice. Serve with grilled pita.
