Crunchy Oat Crumble

Season with salt and pepper and continuously stir for 5 minutes until oats soften. Add the spinach and stir for 1 minute until spinach is wilted. Remove from heat. Make 4 wells in the tomato sauce and crack an egg into each.
3. Bake for 6 minutes for runny eggs, or a cook for 7-8 minutes until eggs are cooked to your liking.
4. Meanwhile, heat a small fry pan over medium-low heat, add the remaining oil, oats and rest of paprika stirring until oats are coated and lightly toasted. Add the parsley and gently stir to coat. Remove from heat.

5. Scatter the toasted oat topping over shakshuka and garnish with crumbled feta.
