    Looking for a healthy and unique breakfast or brunch meal? Za’atar Chickpeas and Poached Eggs is simple and easy to prepare, spiked with lemon and a traditional za’atar seasoning. A yogurt sauce is the base, topped with warm chickpeas, wilted spinach and perfectly poached eggs.

    If you’ve never had za’atar seasoning, it is a staple in Middle Eastern cuisine, a simple mixture of thyme, sea salt, sesame seeds and sumaq. Easy enough to blend at home… if you can find sumaq, a dried berries from a sumaq bush, closely related to the cashew family.

    Za’atar Chickpeas and Poached Eggs is a refreshing, health and gluten-free breakfast option. Lemon zested yogurt sauce, za’atar spiced chickpeas, wilted spinach and poached eggs sprinkled with pink sea salt.Instead, I buy a large pre-blended bag at the grocery store in the International aisle.  Use the rest on hummus or with a good dipping olive oil and bread or pita.

    This dish is based on a meal I recently had in Brooklyn, NY. It was a gluten-free savory breakfast plate that was a great break from French Toast and omelets. Lemon provides a great zest against yolky eggs and the texture of soft chickpeas and wilted spinach.

    Don’t be scared of poaching eggs, with this simple tutorial, you will make some spectacular, golden centered eggs!
