Ingredients
Directions
  1. For the Shakshuka Spice Blend, mix all ingredients in small bowl until well blended. Set aside.
  2. For the Mediterranean Vegetable Shakshuka, heat oil in a large cast iron (heavy based) frying pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook stirring for 5 minutes or until translucent. Add garlic and cook for one minute. Add eggplant and zucchini cook for 10 to 15 minutes stirring occasionally until vegetables are tender.
  3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Add 1 tablespoon of the Shakshuka Spice Blend, sea salt, dill and ground fennel; stir to coat vegetables.
  4. Increase heat to medium. Add tomatoes, stir constantly for 3 to 5 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly.
  5. Reduce heat to low. Make 6 indentations in the surface of sauce mixture with the back of a wooden spoon. Break eggs into each indentation. Cover. Cook 10 to 15 minutes (10 minutes for soft yolks or 15 minutes for firm yolks). Sprinkle with parsley and serve with sliced crusty bread.
