Shakshuka Eggs

This is one of my favourite brunch dishes, so full of flavour and a definite showstopper bringing it to the table!

Serves 4 


  • 50ml olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 red pepper, deseeded and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon chilli flakes
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoon smoked paprika to taste
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes, chopped
  • 1 x 400g (14oz) tins tomatoes, chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 free-range eggs, organic if possible.
  • 50g (2oz) feta, crumbled
  • A big bunch of coriander leaves, coarsely chopped
  • extra virgin olive oil


  1. Cook this in an ovenproof pan as you will be putting it into the oven at the end. I have a paella pan that I use but an ovenproof frying pan also works perfectly well 
  2. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas Mark 6. 
  3. Add the olive oil to a pan and cook onions and pepper until soft (about 10 min) cook until soft. Add the chilli flakes, cumin, turmeric and paprika and cook for 3-4 minutes. 
  4. Stir in chopped tomatoes and cook for another 5 minutes then add the tinned tomatoes and a tsp of sugar.
  5. Bring to the boil, season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  6. Reduce the heat and simmer for around 20-25 minutes until the sauce is nice and thick.
  7. Take a spoon and hollow out little wells in the surface of the sauce to crack eggs into Careful not to break the yolks, use a spoon to gently bury the egg whites under the sauce but leave the yolks on show. 
  8. Crumble the feta over the top except over the yolks. Drizzle with extra virgin olive oil and pop into the preheated oven. 
  9. Depending on how you like your eggs this can take anything between 7/10 minutes. 
  10. Check to make sure egg white fully cooked and if the yolk is cooked to your liking.
  11. Sprinkle with lots of coriander and drizzle with a little more extra virgin olive oil and serve with some delicious bread of your choice

Now dig in and enjoy!! Yum yum!
