Cherry Tomato Basil Sauce: This hearty, homey shakshuka recipe is like a warm hug that's tasty as all get out. Makes 4 to 6 Servings.


  • 1 jar of Sonoma Gourmet Cherry Tomato Basil Sauce
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil (we use our Roasted Chiles Olive Oil)
  • 1 large yellow onion, diced
  • 1 large yellow bell pepper, diced
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 cloves garlic, smashed
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro, plus more for serving
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, plus more for serving
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 5 to 6 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • Crusty bread for serving (optional)


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  2. Warm oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Once shimmering, add the onion, bell pepper, and a large pinch of salt. Cook, stirring often, until the onions are tender and turning translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Add garlic and cumin and cook, stirring constantly, until nice and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Add Cherry Tomato Basil Sauce, cilantro, parsley, and spinach. Stir, and let the mixture come to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and season with salt and pepper as needed.
  5. Use the back of a spoon to make a well near the outer edge of the sauce and crack an egg directly into it. Gently spoon a bit of the tomato mixture over the whites to help contain it and season with salt and pepper. Repeat with the remaining eggs, depending on how many you can fit.
  6. Transfer pot to oven and bake for 8 to 10 minutes, checking often once you reach 8 minutes. They’re done when the egg whites are an opaque white and the yolks are still soft. They should still jiggle in the centers when you wiggle the pan.
  7. Carefully transfer pot to the stovetop and top with feta, additional cilantro, and basil. Serve in bowls with crusty bread.
