Eggs poached in spicy tomatoe sauce served with pita bread

Recipe Ingredients for Skakshuka

1/4 cup olive oil
225 g Anaheim Chile
1 small onion
8 cloves garlic
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
28 oz San Marzano tomatoes
8 eggs
1/2 cup feta cheese
1 tablespoon parsley
4 Whole Wheat Pita Bread

Recipe Directions for Skakshuka

  1. Heat oil in a 12" skillet over medium-high heat. Add chiles and onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, about 6 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, and paprika, and cook, stirring frequently, until garlic is soft, about 2 more minutes.

  2. Put tomatoes and their liquid into a medium bowl and crush with your hands. Add crushed tomatoes and their liquid to skillet along with 1/2 cup water, reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, about 20 minutes. Season sauce with salt.

  3. Crack eggs over sauce so that eggs are evenly distributed across sauce's surface. Cover skillet and cook until yolks are just set, about 5 minutes. Using a spoon, baste the whites of the eggs with tomato mixture, being careful not to disturb the yolk. Sprinkle shakshuka with feta and parsley and serve with pita, for dipping.
