Recipe

Broil peppers on baking sheet. Rotate on each side 2-4 minutes until charred.

Place in a paper bag and cool. Once peppers have cooled, remove from bag. Scrape skin using a paring knife. Remove seeds and chop.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add onion and saute until translucent around 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute another 1-2 minutes. Add spices, salt and pepper and keep sauteing until spices are fragrant and toasted, another 1-2 minutes. 

Add tomato paste and stir into mixture. Add peppers and stir.

Pour in diced tomatoes and kale. Reduce heat to medium. Cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes.

Add eggs. Cover and cook 5 minutes, or until whites are just set.

Serve with fresh parsley and pita bread.
