Poached Eggs in Fresh Tomatoes

When I think about “breakfast for dinner” meal ideas, poached eggs in fresh tomatoes is the first dish that comes to my mind. I make this dish often because it’s very nutritious and so easy to make.  I love any dish that starts with sautéed onions and garlic because the leftovers always taste better the next day. Eggs are delicious regardless of how they are prepared, but poaching them in an aromatic bed of sautéed onions, garlic and fresh tomatoes makes them irresistibly yummy. Adding garbanzo beans ups its protein content making it a great vegetarian dish.
