Best Shakshuka Recipe

Let’s make a delicious breakfast Shakshuka.

Shakshuka is a traditional North African and Middle Eastern morning dish that can be eaten at any time of day. It’s vegetarian and created using simple, healthful ingredients. Shakshuka literally translates to “mixing,” and the classic form is made with tomatoes, onions, and spices, with poached eggs on top.


The spices in shakshuka vary, but they usually include paprika, cumin, chili powder, as well as fresh garlic. It’s flavorful spicy, not scorching spicy, in my opinion. If you want to spice it up, you can always add cayenne pepper.

How do you make Shakshuka?

This delicious Shakshuka dish can be prepared using eggs, a little olive oil, chopped onion, chopped garlic, chopped bell pepper, chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, chili powder, cumin, chili flakes, sugar, salt, pepper, and chopped parsley.

Add a little olive oil to a big pan on the fire. Add the chopped onions once the oil has heated up. After a few minutes of stirring, add some garlic. Add some diced bell pepper to the mix. Continue to stir for another 5 minutes. Add the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste once they’ve wilted a little. Add all of the spices to the tomatoes and cook until they are somewhat diced.

As though you were adding a pinch of sugar. Simmer for 7-8 minutes on low heat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Make a little space in the pan between the sauces and crack the eggs one by one into those spaces. Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes on low heat. Open the top and stir in the chopped parsley once the sauce has settled.


Many photographs of shakshuka prepared in a cast iron pan may be seen on the internet. Tomatoes are acidic, and they can corrode the seasoning and dull the finish of your cast iron pan. The dish may also have a faint metallic flavor. So, instead of taking chances, I recommend using a stainless steel pan like this one from All-Clad.
