Cannellini bean Shakshuka

Hey everybody! Happy Sunday! Anybody else at that stage of the week where you really need a feel-good meal, almost like a hug from inside? I am and let me tell you something this works it’s got an indulgent texture while being nutritious with all the vegetables. As I have started to go to the gym again I don’t have a lot of time in the evening after work to cook so dishes like this are ideal.  This dish is fast and easy to make, whilst being delicious!


1 onion, diced

2 garlic cloves, crushed

4 squirts of cooking spray

3 stalks of celery, cubed

1 carrot, cubed

1 can chopped tomatoes

1 can cannellini beans, drained

3 eggs

Salt, Pepper, Paprika and Oregano to taste

Step by step cooking:

  1. Heat a frying pan, spray the cooking oil.
  2. Add the onion, garlic, celery and carrot and cook until soft, 10 minutes.
  3. Heat oven at 200 C.
  4. Add the chopped tomatoes, beans and seasoning, simmer for another 10 minutes.
  5. In a baking dish add the bean and tomato mixture. Crack the eggs on the top and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Place in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the egg whites are cooked but the yellow still looks slightly gooey.

Serve. ( I watched the great British bake off with this meal and it was the perfect match!)
