This simple, rapid recipe is perfect for anytime of day. You cannot go wrong with B&M and a hot cup of minty tea.
I do not think there is a Moroccan living who has never tasted Bid and Matisha, or egg skillet with tomatoes. It is a basic dish that works for any meal. From breakfast to a light supper before bed, B&M is the ideal, light and fast snack.
B&M is also a great dish if you are on a budget, of either time or money. Eggs and tomatoes, the basic components, are cheap and readily available. They also both cook quickly.
Though the basic ingredients are in the name, I like to add onion, hot pepper, or bell pepper to give the dish an extra kick.
Let’s not waste time talking about it – it is time to get cooking!
You will need:
2 big tomatoes, grated
2 tablespoon of cilantro and parsley, chopped
1 clove of garlic, minced
1 teaspoon of cumin
½ teaspoon of salt
½ teaspoon of paprika
½ teaspoon of turmeric
¼ teaspoon of black pepper
½ teaspoon of cayenne (optional)
3 tablespoon of olive oil
Now we can start the preparation:
In a skillet heat oil over medium heat, add grated tomatoes, garlic, and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
Add the spices and chopped cilantro and parsley, then stir until all the ingredients are mixed well.
Cook for about 5 minutes, until the tomatoes become a loose sauce.
When the tomato sauce is cooked well, crack the eggs into the sauce and cover the skillet. Leave to cook for 5 minutes or until the eggs are well poached.
Serve immediately with bread and tea. Enjoy!
