Shakshuka

Shakshuka

This North African one-dish-meal is so fast, easy, and delicious. Be sure to cook your sauce until the veggies are nice and soft and sweet. Once the eggs go in, you can finish covered on the stove, or just pop the pan into a hot oven until they cook to your liking.

1 TBSP olive oil
1 large onion, diced
1/2 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup diced red bell pepper
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and sliced
1 TBSP C&C Shakshuka Spice
1 (540 ml) can crushed tomatoes
1/2 cup water, or more as needed
6 large eggs
2 TBSP crumbled feta cheese
3 TBSP fresh parsley chopped

Heat olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and mushrooms. Season with salt and pepper. Cook and stir until onions are translucent, approximately 5 minutes. Stir in bell and jalapeno peppers. Cook and stir until peppers begin to soften up, 5 more minutes. Add C&C Shakshuka Spice cook another minute then pour in crushed tomatoes and water. Adjust heat to medium and simmer uncovered until veggies are softened and sweet, stirring occasionally, 15 to 20 minutes. Add more water if sauce becomes too thick.

When sauce has reached the desired consistency, check seasoning and make a depression in the sauce for each egg with a large spoon. Crack egg into a small ramekin and slide gently into each indentation; repeat with the rest of the eggs. Cover and cook until eggs are to your desired doneness.

Top with feta cheese and fresh parsley.
