Description

This Butternut Squash Shakshuka is a healthy recipe with eggs poached in a spiced butternut squash sauce, and topped with feta and fresh herbs. The perfect breakfast, brunch, or any meal!


Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1/2 yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper
  • 3 cups butternut squash puree (about 1 large butternut squash)
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon chopped rosemary

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Heat oil in a large cast iron skillet over medium heat.
  3. Add onion, and cook until softened, about 3-5 minutes.
  4. Add garlic and cook for 30 seconds more.
  5. Stir in spices and squash puree. Remove from heat.
  6. Make 6 wells in squash mixture, and crack an egg into each.
  7. Top with crumbled feta.
  8. Move dish to the preheated oven, and bake until eggs are just set, about 7-10 minutes.
  9. Let cool 5 minutes, and top with fresh herbs.
  10. Serve with toasted bread.

Notes

  • You can use thawed, frozen butternut squash already pureed to make this dish super speedy. If using fresh, simply blend cooked squash with 1/3 cup water in a blender or food processor until smooth, or use my favorite simple mashed butternut squash recipe instead.
  • Make sure not to overcook the eggs! They will continue to cook after removed from the oven, so bake until they look like they are just nearly cooked.
  • Crumbled goat cheese works perfectly with this dish too.
  • Want to make this vegan-friendly? Replace the eggs with slices of tofu.
