Spiced Kale Shakshuka

Spiced Kale Shakshuka
Servings: 4 Yield: 4 eggs + 4 1/2 cups sauce Active Time 12 mins Total Time 30 mins


  • 1 bunch lacinato kale, stems removed and chopped (6 cups)
  • 1 23 1/2 ounce jar lower sodium marinara sauce (2 1/2 cups)
  • 1 15 ounce can reduced-sodium cannellini beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt

Make It

1. Combine the marinara, kale, cannellini beans, paprika, and cinnamon in an 8x8-in. glass baking dish. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 5 minutes or until bubbly.

2. Uncover and stir. Use a spoon to make 4 wells in the marinara mixture. Crack an egg into each well. Season with salt. Gently pierce each yolk with a knife.

3. Cover the dish with a damp paper towel and microwave at 80 percent power for 3 or 4 minutes. Cook in 30- second bursts until the eggs are almost set. (Whites will still be somewhat clear.) Let stand for 5 minutes or until set to your liking.


The Secret To Microwaving Eggs
  • Gently pierce the yolk just before cooking. The eggs will continue to set after cooking, so let them stand for a few minutes if you want firmer yolks.
