Cozy Shakshuka

Updated: Sep 5, 2020

Shakshuka was one of those meals that I thought I'd NEVER be able to make at home. I figured you needed a sturdy cast iron pan and serious chef skills to master this dish. I started seeing Shakshuka recipes popping up online and I figured I'd give it a try.


I'm not into fancy breakfasts ... wait, let me rephrase ... I love going OUT for fancy breakfasts, but I refuse to make my morning at home complicated. So here's an easy lazy morning Shakshuka recipe that you'll love to make (and eat)!

Serves 2 people

What you'll need:

•2 tbsp olive oil or avocado oil

•4 eggs

•1 onion (diced)

•1 red pepper (diced)

•1 can/jar of pureed or diced tomatoes

•1 clove of garlic (minced)

•1 tsp paprika

•1 tsp cumin

•1/4 tsp chilli powder or a sprinkle of cayenne pepper

•Salt & pepper (to taste)

•1/4 cup crumbled feta cheese (optional)

What you'll need to do:

1. Heat oil in a medium sized pan on medium-high heat.

2. Sautéed onion and pepper until softened (about 3-5 minutes) and add in garlic. Season with salt and pepper.

3. After a few minutes, turn heat to low and pour in pureed/diced tomatoes. Season with paprika, cumin and chilli powder. Stir mixture every so often until the sauce begins to thicken.

4. Crack an egg into a separate bowl and make a well in the tomato mixture with a spoon. Pour egg into the well and repeat with the remaining 3 eggs.

5. Cover pan with a lid and let simmer until eggs are cooked to your liking.

6. Crumble feta cheese on top before serving. Serve with a warmed pita, a toasted bagel or bread. Enjoy!
