Easy Shakshuka with Feta

Makes 4 Servings


¼ cup vegetable oil

1 large yellow onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

1/2 teaspoon salt, divided

Freshly ground black pepper

8 cloves garlic, chopped (or to taste)

1 teaspoon ground cumin

1 ½ teaspoons sweet paprika (or normal)

¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 ~750g can diced tomatoes

~1/2cup feta cheese, crumbled

8 eggs

¼ cup chopped flat-leaf parsley

Crusty bread or pita for serving



  1. Heat oil over medium heat in a heavy 12-inch frying pan with tall sides and a lid (which you'll use later).

  2. Add onion and red bell pepper along with a good pinch of the salt and some freshly ground black pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, for ~5 minutes, until somewhat tender.

  3. Add garlic, cumin, paprika, pepper flakes and cook, stirring frequently, 2 minutes. Add tomatoes and remaining salt and simmer until slightly thickened, ~15 minutes. Stir in feta.

  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and, working one at a time, use a spoon to make a small well for each egg and crack egg into it. Cover pan and simmer for 10-15 minutes, until whites are set (start checking at 5 minutes). Remove from heat and sprinkle with parsley and more salt and pepper. Serve immediately with crusty bread or pita.
