Shakshuka Recipe


Preheat your oven to 375F. Heat olive oil in a medium-sized skillet over medium heat. Add in your onion and red pepper and cook for about 5 minutes. Add salt to taste. Next, add in your garlic and spices and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Then, add in your tomatoes, tomato paste, spinach, jalapeno, and fresh herbs. Mix together well and reduce heat. Cook for another 5 minutes and add salt and pepper to taste. Turn off the heat and using the back end of a spoon create your first well and crack an egg into it. Repeat for your other 3 eggs. Next, move your skillet into the oven and bake for about 12-15 minutes (depending on how well done you like your eggs). Top with more fresh herbs and your cheese and serve immediately. This dish is best served right out of the oven and isn’t the best reheated.
