  • 6-quart Slow Cooker


  • 1 Yellow Onion, finely diced
  • 1 16 ounce jar Roasted Red Bell Peppers, drained and then chopped
  • 1 14 ounce can Artichoke Hearts, drained and chopped
  • 3 15 ounce cans Petite Diced Tomatoes, use regular or fire-roasted
  • 3 Tablespoons Tomato Paste
  • 4 cloves Garlic, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cumin
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 8 large Eggs
  • 2 ounces Feta Cheese, crumbled
  • Chopped Parsley (optional, for topping)
  • Pita, Naan, or Toasted Bread, for serving


  • Combine onion, roasted red bell peppers, artichoke hearts, tomatoes (including liquid), tomato paste, garlic, dried oregano, paprika, ground cumin, salt, and pepper in the bowl of a slow cooker.
  • Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours or high for 4 to 5 hours (after cooking, the shakshuka can hold on warm for up to 4 hours before serving).
  • If cooking on low, turn the slow cooker to high.
  • Remove the lid.
  • Working with one egg at a time, crack the egg into a ¼ cup measuring cup. Use the measuring cup to make an indentation in shakshuka and gently pour egg into the indentation. Continue with all remaining eggs.
  • Cover and cook for 20 to 25 minutes more until eggs whites are set and egg yolks are still slightly soft.
  • Serve shakshuka with cheese and parsley on top and pita, naan, or toasted bread for dipping.
