Shakshuka with Spinach and Beans
This one-pan dish of eggs baked in a spicy tomato sauce is thought to have originated in the Middle East, and is now popular across the Mediterranean. Pack in the nutrients by adding fresh spinach (or morogo) and beans, top with creamy feta cheese and serve with sourdough toast or pita breads.
- 30 ml olive oil
- 1 red onion, cubed
- 2 cloves garlic, sliced
- 1 ml Robertsons black pepper, to taste
- 1 red pepper, cut into strips
- 100 g morogo leaves (aka. cane herbs / red herbs) OR spinach (if morogo is unavailable), washed and chopped
- 15 ml Robertsons paprika
- 5 ml Robertsons Origanum

- 1 x 400 g tin chopped tomatoes
- 100 ml water
- 4 eggs
- 50 g feta cheese
- 4 slices sourdough, toasted
- 15 g chopped basil
- Heat the oil in a wide pan or skillet over a medium heat. Add the red onion, garlic and Robertson’s Black Pepper. Sauté until soft.
- Add the red pepper and morogo leaves, and saute for a further 3 minutes.
- Add the Robertson’s Paprika and Robertson’s Origanum. Sauté for a further 1-2 minutes, until aromatic.
