Ingredients

2 teaspoons cumin seeds

3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil 

2 large roasted red peppers (from a jar), finely chopped 

1 small jalapeno, stems, seeds and ribs removed, finely chopped 

1 small onion, finely chopped 

2 tablespoons smoked paprika 

2 cloves garlic, minced 

Kosher salt 

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

One 28-ounce can crushed tomatoes 

4 eggs 

1/4 cup feta, crumbled 

Flaky sea salt 

Directions

Special equipment:
a spice grinder
  1. Toast the cumin seeds in a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring so they don't burn. Transfer to a spice grinder and grind fine.
  2. Add the olive oil to the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the peppers, jalapenos and onions and saute until softened and slightly charred, 7 to 9 minutes. Add the ground cumin, paprika, garlic and 1 teaspoon kosher salt and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the parsley and tomatoes and stir until combined. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10 minutes.
  3. Crack 1 egg into a 1/4-cup measuring cup. Make a well in the sauce with the bottom of the cup and pour the egg into the well. Repeat with the remaining eggs. Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook until the egg whites are set and the yolk is slightly runny, 5 to 8 minutes. Sprinkle with the feta while still warm. Season with flaky sea salt.
