Recipe: Shakshuka is an easy-to-make, one-pan meal that’s perfect for breakfast or brunch.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 large red bell pepper, chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed or minced
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes, reduce or omit if sensitive to spice
  • 1 large can (28 ounces) crushed tomatoes, preferably fire-roasted
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (coriander) or flat-leaf parsley, plus addition cilantro or parsley leaves for garnish
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 5 to 6 large eggs
  • ½ cup crumbled feta
  • Crusty bread or pita, for serving

Instructions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees celsius. 
  2. Heat the oil in a large, oven-safe skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, bell pepper, and salt. Stir and cook  until the onions are tender and turning translucent for about 4 to 6 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic, tomato paste, cumin, paprika and red pepper flakes. Cook, stirring constantly, for a minute or 2.
  4. Pour in the crushed tomatoes with their juices and add the cilantro. Stir, and let the mixture come to a simmer. Maintain a gentle simmer, and cook for 5 minutes.
  5. Turn off the heat. Add salt and pepper as necessary. Use the back of a spoon to make a well near the perimeter and crack the egg directly into it. Gently spoon a bit of the tomato mixture over the whites to help contain the egg. Repeat with the remaining 4 to 5 eggs, depending on how many you can fit. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper over the eggs.
  6. Carefully transfer the skillet to the oven and bake for 8 to 12 minutes, checking often once you reach 8 minutes. 
  7. Using oven mitts, transfer the hot skillet to a heat-safe surface like the stove. Top with the crumbled feta, fresh cilantro (coriander) leaves, and more red pepper flakes, if you want. 
  8. Serve in bowls with crusty bread on the side.

They’re done when the egg whites are an opaque white and the yolks have risen a bit but are still soft. They should still jiggle in the centers when you shimmy the pan. Remember that the skillet will be heavy and the eggs will continue cooking after you pull the dish out of the oven.
