Shakshuka for the win! Who’s with me? I love a traditional tomato based Shakshuka, but when it gets warm outside I tend to feel that it’s a bit heavy and I’d rather have something lighter and more fresh. That’s when I turn to her green baby sister! Green shakshuka is just as flavorful and delicious as a regular tomato based shakshuka, but it’s lighter and feels more fresh. It’s really a perfect option to make during warm summer days when you still want something filling, tasty and flavorful, but you don’t want something too heavy. 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.

The choice of ingredients:

  • 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
