1 TBSP. Kosterina extra virgin olive oil
½ small red onion, minced
⅓ small red pepper, seeded and chopped
1 small garlic clove, minced
¼ tsp. cumin
--- pinch of red pepper flakes
9 oz. fire-roasted tomatoes, chopped (⅔ of a 14oz. can)
--- sea salt & freshly ground pepper
2 large organic eggs
2 oz. Greek Feta cheese, crumbled
2 TBSP. fresh cilantro, minced
Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Heat the Kosterina olive oil in a small, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Cook the onion and pepper for a few minutes, add the garlic and the spices, and cook until everything is softened.
Add the tomatoes, salt and pepper and simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce is slightly reduced.
Make two small wells in the cooked tomato and pepper sauce and crack one egg inside each one. Place the skillet in the oven and cook until the eggs whites are just set and yolk is still runny, about 10 to 12 minutes.
To serve, sprinkle some Feta cheese and some minced cilantro over each skillet and serve.

Our executive chef Anna Gass gives this trending TikTok recipe a serious upgrade by swapping out regular olive oil with our beloved Garlic Olive Oil and tossing in fresh spinach, heirloom cherry tomatoes, oregano and shrimp. This dish turns into a creamy and comforting pasta within 40 minutes.
Gemista in Greek simply means stuffed. Hence, this veggie dish is truly open for customization. Traditionally stuffed with ground meat, we decided to lighten the load by adding a savory wild rice mixture to our zucchini, peppers and eggplant. Great with tomatoes too, this is a main dish that vegetarians, as well as carnivores, can truly get behind. Have fun stuffing the veggies of your choice for variety and optionality.
