Quick breakfast

Easiest breakfast that got whipped up out of nothing. I love days like this!

I was going to do a fried egg, but then I saw a tomato from the corner of my eye and I had some homemade pizza sauce in the fridge so I added about 2-3 tbsp of tomato sauce in the pan and began washing the tomato and draining it in the strainer. One of my biggest pet peeves in this world is tomato peel, or maybe it's a phobia because no matter how tiny it is ground up I am pretty sure I'll choke on it.

My kettle just finished boiling so I poured the water over the tomato in the strainer and then began peeling it, peel came off so easily! No blanching necessary.
It was a super ripe tomato so I chopped it up and added it to the skillet.

I couldn't stop there, what about some green pepper!

A few slices of green pepper went in. Cut off a chunk of red onion and thinly sliced that.

Crushed a large garlic clove and threw it in. Sliced up a thick chunk of ginger and nestled it between the tomatoes (can be removed later)

At this point I thought why not spice it up?

A dash of cinnamon, turmeric, black pepper, ground coriander, cumin, paprika, crushed chilli.

Once this simmered and almost dried up I created a nest in the middle of the skillet by pushing the vegetables to the side and then cracked some eggs in the middle. Covered and cook to desired doneness.

Season with salt and a little sprinkling of pepper on the eggs and good to go!
Serve with flat bread and some fresh cilantro (I love cilantro!) and a nice big cup of moroccan mint tea.
