  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp smoked paprika

    Step 1

  • Heat oven to 400°F. Heat oil in a high-sided, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add onion, bell pepper, cumin and smoked paprika, and sauté for 8-10 minutes, until the vegetables are tender.

    Step 2

  • Add tomatoes and water to skillet. Bring to a boil. Stir in rice and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook for 3-5 minutes, or until most of the water is absorbed.

    Step 3

  • Using a spoon, create 6 small wells in rice mixture. Crack an egg into each well. Transfer skillet to oven; cook for 12-15 minutes, or until rice is tender, and egg whites are set and yolks are runny, or until the eggs are cooked as desired.

    Step 4

  • Garnish shakshuka with parsley before serving.

    Recipe Tip

    For spicy eggs, stir 1 tablespoon of harissa paste into rice mixture before adding eggs. Or, simply serve the shakshuka alongside your favorite hot sauce.

Shakshuka 101

A dish with origins in the Middle East and Northern Africa, shakshuka is traditionally made with a base of tomatoes, vegetables and seasonings, such as cumin and paprika. Eggs are cracked on top and cooked in the sauce, either on the stovetop or in the oven.

Our foolproof version of shakshuka goes a step further with the addition of Minute® White Rice. The rice gives this dish a heartier texture that keeps you feeling satisfied for longer.

One-Pot Meal

Although it is often served as a breakfast or brunch dish, shakshuka also makes a wonderful lunch or dinner. And, since everything is cooked together in one pot, this dish makes for the simplest clean-up imaginable!
