Bring in the Eggs -Variation on Shakshuka


1 onion
5-6 cloves of garlic
4 green bell peppers
3-4 fresh tomatoes, chopped, or a can of peeled tomatoes
1 jalapeno pepper
1 tsp cumin
4 eggs
olive oil
fresh parsley or cilantro
salt and pepper

Heat oil in a heavy pan over medium-high heat. Cook the onion, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown. Add garlic and cumin, and cook, stirring frequently, until garlic is soft, about 2 more minutes.

Add the sliced green peppers and jalapeno. Stir well. Add chopped/crushed tomatoes and their liquid to pan. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, about 25 minutes. Season sauce with salt and pepper.

Crack eggs over sauce so that eggs are evenly distributed. Cover pan and cook until yolks are just set, about 7-8 minutes. Sprinkle shakshuka with parsley or cilantro.

  1. I’m coming over for supper tonight, Ilana-Davita. Sounds absolutely mouth-watering. Will try it … uh, ask my husband to do so(since being ‘wheeled’ and O²-ed, he does the cooking).
