Have you ever heard of Shakshouka? It's North-African in origin but also served a lot in the Mediterranean kitchen lately. It consists basically out of poached eggs in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions spiced with cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper as well as nutmeg. If you like it really spicy you can add some Tabasco to it. In combination with warm pita bread and extra virgin olive oil it is absolutely amazing! We made it with a little twist and put some feta inside, chickpeas and lots of olive oil.
- 1 onion
1 clove of garlic
1 red pepper
2 cans of cherry tomatoes (each 250g)
Half a can of chickpeas
1 tsp smoked paprika
- 4 eggs
- Salt, pepper
- Feta cheese
Neolea Olive Oil
1. Cut the onion and garlic in small cubes and slice the pepper. Briefly sweat the onion and garlic in some olive oil and after 3 minutes add the pepper. It now has to rest about 2 minutes before you add the chickpeas without the liquid of the can. Now you can also add the tomatoes and season it with salt, pepper, smoked paprika and herbs of your choice.
2. Let it reduce for about 10 minutes but keep stirring once in a while. Take a big spoon and try to create 4 tiny holes inside the Shakshouka. Put the eggs inside and cover the pan with its lid, to make sure the eggs to harden. If you don't have one, cover it with a large plate instead. Just make sure the eggs are covered. All in all it should take 8-10 minutes, depending on the oven and heat.
3. When the egg white is hard but the egg yolk is still liquid, take the pan off the oven and add feta, herbs and a nice shot of olive oil. Serve some bread with it and enjoy.
I had bought your products when I was on a family vacation back in October 2019. I love them I was so excited to find you online so I could continue purchasing them. Of course the olive oil is superb but your salts are beyond amazing
It was a lucky shot as the add for this product appeared in my Facebook timeline. I ordered the olive oil and all the different flavors of the sea salt. The olive oil is really good just dip it in some fresh bread and eat it. I'm very happy with my product and will definitely order again.
Simply amazing! Neolea must be definitely the best olive oil I've ever tasted. So smooth and fruity with notes of banana and honey at first and then it kicks back with just the right amount of fiery pepper aftertaste. With beautiful packaging design, this is just wonderful olive oil. This is how great product should taste and be presented.
There are a few little things that can bring instant gratification. A good espresso and a tasty olive oil. Both can excel in their simplicity and the olive oil of Neolea does too. It’s lovely for cold and hot applications. My wife, who is Greek, approves too. It really is that good. My next order will be the 5 liter tin.
