shakshuka with feta and pesto
Could you even imagine a more perfect meal? I simply cannot. It’s a one pan dish (wish we love) and uses bread to dip (which we also love).
I added a twist on a classic shakshuka recipe by adding jalapeño for a kick, mashed chickpeas for extra protein, and dollops of pesto.
It’s balanced and full of protein and veggies!
1 tbsp minced garlic
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 diced sweet yellow onion
1 small green bell pepper
1/3 can chickpeas (or about 5 oz)
1 large can (28 oz) diced tomato
1/4 cup feta
4 tbsp pesto
1 tbsp parmesan
1 tbsp fresh parsley
recipe (makes 4 servings)
to a large pan over medium heat add olive oil, garlic, onion, and green bell pepper
cook for 5-8 mins until fragrant, then add can of diced tomatoes
let simmer for 10-12 mins
loosely mash chickpeas and add them to pan
make 4 divets in the sauce and crack 1 egg in each
sprinkle feta over pan and add dollops of pesto
cover pan to cook until egg whites are mostly cooked and yolk is runny (crucial for dipping!)
slice baguette into 1” thick pieces, and toast until crisp
sprinkle shakshuka with parmesan and parsley, dip with bread and enjoy!
