Mujadara with a Fried Egg Recipe
Serves: 1
You can poach, soft boil, or even scramble your egg for this dish. I love it fried in olive oil, with the oil from the pan nicely coating the mujadara along with the egg.
  • 1 cup warm mujadara
  • Handful of arugula
  • Spoonful of labneh
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • Pinch of sumac or za’atar
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. In a serving dish or bowl, top the mujadara with the arugula and labneh.
  2. In a small non-stick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat until it’s hot, but not smoking. Crack the egg into the oil and cook, taking care with the splattering hot oil. Cover the skillet, checking occasionally until the yolk is covered with a light white film and the edges of the egg are golden and crispy.
  3. Tip the egg and any remaining oil from the pan over the mujadara, arugula, and labneh. Top everything with a pinch of sumac or za’atar, and season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
