Green Shakshouka

Shakshuka for brunch! Who’s with me? I love a traditional tomato based Shakshuka, but when it gets a bit warm outside I tend to feel that its a bit heavy and I’d rather have something lighter and more fresh. Thats when I turn to her green baby sister!

You still have a lot of flavor but its more light an easy. The best thing is that you can just throw in all the greens you have at home, especially the ones that are starting to look a bit sad.

I love mixing different textures, shapes and flavors. So in this Shakshuka I used:

  • Bell pepper for some crunch and mastication.
  • Spinach, green leafs and kale to keep it fresh and light
  • Garlic, onion, dry herbs and harissa to have a good flavor and some spice
  • Eggs…its not a Shakshuka without eggs right?
  • Lemon to add some freshness and acid
  • Sugar snaps and pea sprouts for some extra crunch
  • Feta cheese for the creaminess
  • Fresh herbs for that extra freshness and lots of flavor
