Shakshuka is an easy to prepare, delicious and flavorful dish that you can make in minutes. My recipe features shaved brussels over the top for some extra flavor and texture. Enjoy!
1 Tbsp olive oil divided
4 oz fresh yellow onions
1 tsp fresh garlic cloves peeled, minced
1 fresh green bell peppers diced
2 Tbsp canned tomato paste
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground paprika
1/8 tsp ground cayenne pepper
26 oz canned diced tomatoes, no salt added
2 Tbsp fresh cilantro
4 each egg
1/2 cup Brussels Sprouts
pinch of salt and pepper r
In a deep skillet or sauté pan, sauté onions and peppers together in 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium high heat. Add garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add tomato paste and stir thoroughly. Allow the paste to caramelize slightly.
Add the diced tomatoes and spices and stir well. Reduce heat to medium low and allow mixture to simmer to marry flavors and heat through.
Cut Brussels sprouts in half and cook in boiling water for 3 minutes. Drain well. Toss with 1 tsp olive oil, salt and black pepper. Sear on a hot skillet until browned and set aside.
Crack eggs one at a time into the tomato mixture. Be sure to allow space in between each egg. Cover the pan or cook in a 350F oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked through. Garnish with cilantro and spread Brussel sprouts evenly over the top of the dish.
