Simple Shakshuka Recipe FetaSimple Shakshuka Recipe

Shakshuka is a delicious brunch dish as well as a satisfying meal. You may prepare the sauce well in advance and simply reheat it to a boil before adding the eggs if you want to get a head start.


Olive oil, 1/4 cup
chopped one big yellow onion
1 chopped red bell pepper
1 salty teaspoon, divided
black pepper freshly ground
8 chopped garlic cloves
1 teaspoon of cumin, ground
1 1/2 tablespoons sweet paprika from Hungary
1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 package of 26.6 ounces of diced tomatoes
3 ounces of crumbled feta cheese
8 eggs
chopped flat-leaf parsley, 1/4 cup
pita or crusty bread for serving


In a large 12-inch frying pan with tall sides and a cover (which you’ll need later), heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the red bell pepper, onion, and a generous teaspoon of salt. Cook, turning regularly, for approximately 5 minutes, or until the vegetables are starting to get fairly soft. Add the pepper flakes, garlic, cumin, and paprika and simmer for a further two minutes while stirring regularly. After adding the tomatoes, continue to boil for about 15 minutes, adding the remaining salt as needed. Mix in the feta.

Turn down the heat to medium-low, break one egg at a time into a tiny well that has been created with a spoon, and then repeat with the other eggs. Whites should set after 10-15 minutes of simmering with lid on pan. Add extra salt and pepper and parsley before turning the heat off. Serve with pita or crusty bread.

Notes Alternatively, you can continue to prepare this meal in a 400°F oven. There, too, the eggs should set in about ten minutes; maybe a bit less. At the five-minute point, start checking.
