Shakshuka: Tomatoes, Eggs, Eggplant, Leeks, Sweet Potatoes, and Feta

Let’s have a serious talk about the intense deliciousness of a saucy baked eggs dish combined with limitless wonderful ingredients, otherwise known as shakshuka. There are lots of variations, but this particular recipe is packed with delicious veggies that are first lightly caramelized on top of the stove, then bathed in exquisitely sweet San Marzano tomatoes.

The eggs are added to tiny wells, and the pan is then transferred to the oven to bake until the yolks are soft and runny, jammy or hard-cooked, or whatever you prefer. If you want to get a little adventurous, replace the chicken eggs with tiny quail eggs, or giant duck eggs. If you choose to make this switch, just be sure to adjust the baking time up or down depending on the size of your eggs.
