Easy Low FODMAP Shakshuka is a quick vegetarian skillet meal featuring eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce with bell peppers and leek leaves.



Optional Serving Suggestions

  • Freshly chopped parsley
  • Finely chopped green onions (green tops only)
  • Feta cheese
  • Cooked rice


  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add olive oil, leek leaves (dark green tops only), and red bell pepper. Saute stirring occasionally until the bell pepper pieces are fork-tender.
  2. Stir in Fody Foods Low FODMAP Arrabbiata Sauce and cumin. Heat until sauce is just about to boil.
  3. Mentally divide the skillet into quarters and carefully crack an egg into each quarter on top of the sauce. (You can try to create little wells with a heat-resistant spoon for the eggs, but the sauce tends to fill back in pretty quickly). Cover the skillet, reduce the heat to medium, and cook until the eggs are cooked to your desired doneness.
  4. Top with optional fresh parsley, chopped green onions (green tops only), and feta cheese and serve warm over cooked rice.
