Butternut Squash Shakshuka
- 1 1/2 tablespoons olive oil
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 white onion, chopped
- 2 cups (9 ounces) butternut squash, cut into ½-inch pieces
- 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
- 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
- 1 28-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes
- 4 large eggs
- 1/4 cup cilantro, leaves and tender stems
- Optional: 1/4 cup crumbled feta
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
- Heat olive oil in a large cast iron or non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Add onions and cook until they become translucent, about 5 minutes. Add in the garlic and squash and cook for another 12-15 minutes, until the squash becomes fork tender.
- Season with salt, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Mix frequently until spices become fragrant, 1 minute.
- Use your hands to lightly crush the canned tomatoes over the squash mixture. Then, add the remaining tomato liquid. Mix occasionally and cook until tomatoes thicken slightly and become a burnt red color, about 9-12 minutes. Season with more salt to taste.
- Use a spoon to create four divots in the tomato mixture, then crack 1 egg into each divot. Transfer skillet to the oven for 13-16 minutes, until the egg whites are set and the yolks are still runny.
- Remove skillet from oven and let cool for a few minutes. Top with cilantro and feta (if using) and serve.
