Shakshuka with Goat Cheese

This North African–inspired dish can be served as a savoury brunch item or a light dinner entrée with crusty bread or toasted pita bread to sop up the spicy sauce and velvety rich egg.

  • Yields: 12
  • Preparation: 45 minutes



  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Heat butter in large skillet set over medium heat; sauté onions and peppers for about 7 minutes or until tender. Stir in cumin, paprika and red pepper flakes.
  2. Gently crush tomatoes with hands; add to skillet along with juices. Add 1 tsp (5 mL) salt and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) pepper; simmer for about 10 minutes or until thickened.
  3. Pour mixture into 9-inch (23 cm) square casserole dish. Using back of spoon, create indentations in tomato sauce and gently crack egg into each one. Season eggs with remaining salt and pepper; crumble cheese over top. Transfer to oven and bake for about 7 minutes or until eggs are just set. Sprinkle with cilantro.
  • For more heat, add 1/2 tsp (2 mL) cayenne pepper to skillet mixture and use Ivanhoe Cheese Goat Jalapeño Peppers.
