Eggs for Dinner Tonight? Try Shakshuka

If you read my last post, you know I’m a huge fan of eggs. I promised I would be posting an egg recipe soon, so I wanted to share a dish that is new to my collection. I recently found a recipe for a middle eastern dish known as Shakshuka. It’s suitable for any time of day, requires little time to prepare, and tastes fantastic! I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did!


1 tbsp olive oil, 1/4 cup green onion, 1 tbsp garlic oil, 4 cups diced tomatoes, 2 tbsp tomato paste, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp paprika, sea salt, pepper, 6 eggs, and 1 tbsp fresh parsley for garnish.


Crack eggs over tomato mixture, spacing evenly. I space 5 eggs around the outer edge of the pan and one in the center. Cover and simmer 10-12 minutes. Keep an eye on the sauce to be sure the sauce does not reduce too much. Garnish with parsley.

Heat a large skillet on medium. Warm olive oil and add green onion, sautéing for 3-4 minutes. Add tomatoes, paste, and garlic oil to pan, stirring well. Add spices and simmer over medium heat for 5-7 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Optional: add a pinch of sugar for a sweeter sauce.

Enjoy! I hope this recipe was a success for you and your family! You may like this recipe with roasted potatoes and rosemary. I know I did 🙂

Until next time,
