Easy Shakshuka with Feta
This Easy Shakshuka with Feta is one of my family’s favorite midweek meat free meals. Shakshuka is a classic Mediterrannean dish in which eggs are poached in a spicy savory tomato sauce. The beauty of this dish is that it works for brunch, lunch or dinner too!
Start by toasting and grinding coriander, cumin and fennel seeds. If you don’t have the seeds in your pantry, you can use 1 teaspoon each of the ground versions of these spices instead. Char onions and bell pepper in a cast iron skillet. Once charred, add the spices, paprika, and kosher salt before adding tomatoes and white beans. Once the sauce thickens, create a little hole for each egg using a wooden spoon. Crack in the eggs and season. Place a lid on top and cook for 4-6 minutes until the eggs set. Serve garnished with fresh herbs or crumbled feta.
