While the eggs cook, in a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the diced onion and quartered tomatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally and pressing on the tomatoes with the back of a spoon, 2 to 3 minutes, or until slightly softened. Add the chopped garlic and ginger and spice blend. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until combined. Add the crushed tomatoes and chickpeas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Turn off the heat. Add the spinach and stir until wilted. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
