Method

  1. Heat the oil in a 20cm non-stick frying pan, add the courgette and cook for a few mins, stirring occasionally, until softened. Meanwhile, beat the harissa with the eggs and pour into the pan. Cook gently, stirring, to allow the uncooked egg to flow onto the base of the pan. When it is two-thirds cooked, leave it untouched for 2 mins to set. Slide onto a plate, then return to the pan, uncooked-side down, to finish cooking.

  2. To serve, tip onto a board and spread with the hummus. Scatter with the pepper, olives and coriander. Cut into quarters and eat warm or cold.

This was so quick and tasty. I added some onion at the start, and I didn't have any olives so added some salad leaves at the end. I wasn't brave enough to attempt the pan flip so popped it under the grill for about 2 minutes instead. Looking forward to having this again!

This is really good, the bitterness of the olives is balanced out by the sweetness of the peppers. To improve I personally use a whole tub of full fat hummus ;) plus about three times the number of olives. Also try roughly chopping the courgettes with a knife instead of grating them for a chunkier texture. Drizzle olive oil on the top to serve.

Would recommend this. Tasted really good and the harissa added a good depth of flavour.

Made this last night - it was lush! So healthy too. Was difficult to slide out and flip but not impossible. If I had an appropriate pan I would have just grilled the top. Made a few adjustments: added onion, used black olives, no coriander. Served with boiled new potatoes and rocket leaves. Next time will add 2 tsp harissa.

Quick to make and tasted great. I loved the addition of Harissa to the egg. Had a few problems getting it out of the pan to flip over, mine certainly didn't end up looking like the picture, but it still tasted brill.
