Zucchini noodles with Harissa, yellow pepper, tomatoes & an egg!

It felt like an ‘egg for lunch’ kind of day today! Zucchini noodles with Harissa, yellow pepper & tomatoes!

6oz zucchini noodles (made with my Paderno spiralizer, love it!)
1 large egg
1tbsp Mina spicy harissa
1.5oz chopped yellow pepper
6 cherry tomatoes – halved
1tsp Paleo Butter
1tsp diced yellow onion
1/4tsp minced garlic
Salt/Pepper
Flat leaf parsley – chopped

Place 1tsp of Paleo Butter in a small skillet over medium-low/medium heat. Once the butter is hot, add in garlic and yellow onion. Cook for about 30-60 seconds and then add in the harissa, cherry tomatoes & yellow pepper. Continue to cook for another minute or so and then add the zucchini noodles into the pan, lightly season with salt & pepper. Stir the noodles until fully coated in the sauce. Make a ‘nest’ in the noodles and then crack the egg into it. Cover and cook until the egg white is fully set, roughly 5-6 minutes. Top with fresh ground pepper & chopped parsley.
