In this Mid­dle East­ern take on baked eggs, also called shak­shuka, the eggs are poached in a zesty spiced tomato sauce for an all-in-one meal. Serve along­side warmed wedges of pita or crusty bread to soak up all of the rich sauce.

1 tbsp olive oil

1 onion, sliced half sweet red pep­per, diced

3 cloves gar­lic, minced

¼ tsp ground cumin

¼ tsp sweet pa­prika

¼ tsp each salt and pep­per pinch cayenne pep­per

1 can (796 mL) diced to­ma­toes

3 tbsp tomato paste

⅓ cup crum­bled feta cheese

6 eggs

2 tbsp chopped fresh pars­ley

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook onion and red pep­per, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally, un­til onion is soft­ened and light golden, about 10 min­utes.

Stir in gar­lic, cumin, pa­prika, half each of the salt and pep­per, and the cayenne pep­per; cook, stir­ring, un­til fra­grant, about 30 sec­onds. Stir in to­ma­toes and tomato paste; bring to boil. Re­duce heat and sim­mer, stir­ring oc­ca­sion­ally, un­til thick­ened, about 10 min­utes.

Scrape into 12-cup (3 L) casse­role dish; sprin­kle with all but 2 tbsp of the feta. Us­ing spoon, make 6 wells in tomato mix­ture; crack 1 egg into each well. Sprin­kle re­main­ing salt and pep­per over eggs. Bake in 375°F oven un­til whites are set but yolks are still slightly soft, 15 to 18 min­utes.

Re­move from oven; tent with foil and let stand for 5 min­utes. Sprin­kle with re­main­ing feta and the pars­ley. per each of 6 serv­ings: about 157 cal, 9 g pro,
