1 tablespoon olive oil

1 small onion, diced

1 bell pepper, diced

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon paprika

1 can (14 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained

Salt and pepper to taste

Fresh parsley, for garnish


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large, deep skillet or frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and bell pepper, and sauté until they start to soften.

  2. Add the garlic, cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper to the pan. Stir everything together and cook for another minute or so, until the garlic is fragrant.

  3. Pour in the diced tomatoes with their juice, and season with salt and pepper. Let the mixture simmer for about 15-20 minutes, until it starts to reduce.

  4. Make little wells in the tomato mixture with a spoon, and crack an egg into each one. Cover the pan, and cook for another 5-10 minutes, until the eggs are done to your liking.

  5. Sprinkle the fresh parsley over the top, and serve the shakshuka warm, straight from the pan.
