Posted on April 24, 2019 | Recipe
Wake up your taste buds from their winter slumber with this spicy breakfast recipe from Inspired by the Seasons. Shakshuka is a traditional Israeli/Moroccan dish where eggs are cooked in a spiced and stewed tomato sauce. Make it as fresh and flavorful as possible with ingredients you can find at market: spinach, local canned tomatoes, garlic, onion, crushed red pepper, feta, eggs, and crusty bread!
- 2 T olive oil
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 1 T minced garlic
- 1 T red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp cumin powder
- 1/2 tsp smoked red paprika
- 1 tsp freshly cracked pepper
- 2 14 oz cans crushed tomatoes
- 1/2 c packed spinach leaves, chopped
- 3/4 c feta, cut into 1/2" cubes
- 3 large eggs
- 1 loaf crusty bread for savoring the remaining sauce on your plate
In a 10 in skillet, heat the olive oil over medium high heat and add the chopped onions. Cook for five minutes. Add seasonings and garlic and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes.
Add in tomatoes and reduce heat to medium, cooking for 12-15 minutes until sauce has thickened somewhat but still loose enough to slosh around when you shake the pan. Stir in the chopped greens and cook for 2 minutes. Press the feta cubes into the mixture.
With the back of a spoon, make 3 indentations in the sauce. Crack an egg into each indentation and cook covered for an additional 10 minutes until eggs are done to your liking. Gently ladle sauce over the eggs to speed up the cooking of the eggs.
