Ingredients (serves 2)

  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 small red capsicum, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried coriander
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes (optional)
  • 1 can (400g) crushed tomatoes
  • ¾ cup UNCLE TOBYS Traditional Rolled Oats
  • ½ cup water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 4 free-range eggs
  • Handful parsley, finely chopped, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tbsp crumbled feta
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp sweet paprika
  • 3 tbs UNCLE TOBYS Traditional Rolled Oats


  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Heat a large fry pan over medium heat. Add one tablespoon of oil, onion, garlic and capsicum and cook for 5 minutes or until soft. Add the half a teaspoon of paprika, dried coriander, cumin and chili flakes (if using) and cook for 1 minute or until aromatic.
  2. Add crushed tomatoes and simmer for 10 minutes or until mixture thickens slightly. Add ¾ cups of rolled oats and water. Season with salt and pepper and continuously stir for 5 minutes until oats soften. Add the spinach and stir for 1 minute until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat. Make 4 wells in the tomato sauce and crack an egg into each.
  3. Bake for 6 minutes for runny eggs, or a cook for 7-8 minutes until eggs are cooked to your liking.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a small fry pan over medium-low heat, add the remaining oil, oats and rest of paprika stirring until oats are coated and lightly toasted. Add the parsley and gently stir to coat. Remove from heat.
  5. Scatter the toasted oat topping over shakshuka and garnish with crumbled feta.

  • I’m impressed with just the name! Shakshuka….shakshuka….love it

    • Yes its’s a beautiful name indeed :)


  • I’ve never heard of this dish and with the amount of ingredients involved I doubt I’ll be making it either. Thanks for sharing though

    • Shakshouka is just a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, olive oil, peppers, onion and garlic, and commonly spiced with cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper, and nutmeg. The dish has existed in Mediterranean cultures for centuries.
      You can vary to your liking. I often enough make it very simple like frying onion garlic, carrot and zucchini (or whatever you have at home) add spices (sometimes I use Moroccan spices) add chopped tomato’s and when cooked make holes to add eggs


  • I have never heard or tried this but gee, it looks so amazing. The long list of ingredients puts me off a little though.


  • I’ve never had this before but I want to try now!! Looks delish


  • I’ve never seen it with rolled oats before, I’ll have to give it a try


  • Yum! I’d do it as a lovely light dinner!


  • Never heard this name before.


  • Sounds nice. I will skip cumin in my dish.


  • Sounds wonderful and I was going to give it a try until I saw the canned tomatoes, oats and baby spinach. These are all high in potassium and my household has to make sure that potassium is at the lowest limits.


  • All those ingredient sound amazing together :)
