Shakshuka with chickpeas


Shakshuka with chickpeas

2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 teaspoon cumin
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 14.5oz cans petite diced tomatoes with green chiles
1/3 cup water
8 eggs
2 tablespoon cilantro, chopped

2 pieces pita bread
1/2 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
1/4 cup hummus


1. Preheat the oven to 375˚. Heat the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the chickpeas, cumin and a pinch each of salt and pepper; stir well to coat. Add the tomatoes and water. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until the sauce thickens, about 20 minutes.

2. Make 8 wells in the sauce and crack an egg into each; run the edge of a spatula through the whites to distribute them, being careful not to break the yolks. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until the egg whites are just set, 8 to 10 minutes. (The eggs will continue cooking after you remove them from the oven.) Meanwhile, wrap the pita bread in foil and warm in the oven, about 5 minutes; cut into wedges.

3. Combine the yogurt, hummus and a pinch of salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle the herbs over the eggs; season with salt and pepper. Serve with the pita bread and hummus sauce.
