  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ white onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, diced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • 2 teaspoons paprika
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more!)
  • 2 14-ounce can of diced or sliced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 tablespoon champagne or white vinegar
  • Salt to taste
  • 4 eggs
  • 2-4 thin slices fresh mozzarella cheese
  • ½ cup fresh basil, chiffonade
  1. In a large saute pan, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat and saute your onions and jalapenos with a pinch of salt for a 3-4 minutes until slightly soft. Add garlic and sauté for 1 more minute.
  2. Then add your cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper and stir. Add in the tomatoes and vinegar and simmer uncovered until thick, about 10-15 minutes. Add salt to taste.
  3. Then crack eggs one at a time into a ramekin and gently pour each one into the shakshuka. This method helps the eggs keep their shape. Add mozzarella slices and cover with the pan top of foil and cook for 5-7 more minutes until the egg whites are set and cheese is melty. Cook longer if you want the yolks set too.
  4. Garnish with basil and serve with crusty bread!
