Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium/low flame (if using cast iron it must be well-seasoned to avoid a metallic taste due to the acidity of the tomatoes). Add bell pepper and sauté for ten minutes. Stir in garlic and Cauliflower Rice and sauté for an additional ten minutes. Stir in tomatoes, with juice, harissa, cumin and salt and simmer for ten minutes more. (At this point, if prepping the day before, refrigerate sauce and simply reheat when ready to move onto the next step). Using the back of a large spoon, make six indentations in tomato mixture (one in center of pan and five around edge). Making sure yolks stay intact, crack one egg into each of the wells. Turn off flame and place pan in preheated oven. Bake for 8-12 minutes, or until egg whites are fully set but yolks remain a bit runny. Remove from oven, top with parsley and black pepper and serve with rustic toast. For an added touch, top with crumbled feta.
