  1. Step 1

    Heat oil in a 26cm (top measurement) frying pan over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 mins or until soft and light golden. Add the garlic, cumin, paprika and cayenne pepper. Stir for 30 secs or until aromatic. Add the beetroot and cook, stirring, for 3 mins or until beetroot softens slightly.

  2. Step 2

    Add the tomato, stock and vinegar to the pan and stir to combine. Cover and cook for 5 mins or until beetroot is tender. Season. Use a spoon to make 4 indents in the mixture. Crack 1 egg into each indent. Cook for 4 mins. Cover and cook for a further 1 min or until the egg white is just set*.

  3. Step 3

    Sprinkle the shakshuka with parsley. Season with pepper and serve with fetta and pita bread.

    *This recipe uses raw egg. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly and people with compromised immune systems do not consume raw egg.

Recipe tip

Smart swap:
Use whatever bread you have at home instead of pita – baguette or ciabatta work well, too. 

Use it up: Use leftover parsley as a base in sauces, such as our Homemade Chimichurri.
