Quick & Easy Shakshuka

Written by chanie on April 3rd, 2011

I absolutely love shakshuka! I couldn’t think of a better breakfast on a Sunday morning, or any morning for that matter. The rich and spicy tomato sauce paired with a runny egg and some fresh hot bread or pita – could it get any better? Now Shakshuka can be a patchke to make, what with the chopping, sauteeing, and fresh tomatoes…I don’t know about you but after a long Shabbos, and an even longer Motzei Shabbos, the last thing I want to do is start cooking, AGAIN (hence the Sunday night meal of leftovers!). But I have simplified this recipe to the easiest 2-ingredient fix (for the most basic) you could think of! Even the tired and weary can whip up a plate of these in no time!

Note: If you are watching your carbs, this is actually a great recipe because it is a whole meal-in-one and it’s very filling! Skip the bread, of course!

    First I’ll sautee an onion and garlic, red or yellow peppers if I have any. Instead of Marinara, I use a jar of chunky salsa. Then I do everything else like you do regarding spicy or not. Make an indentation in the sauce for the eggs to slide.

    Hi Chanie,

    Thank you very much for the great recipe and the idea what to do with homemade ketchup leftovers! I added leeks and celery stalks, and the shakshuka tasted really delicious!

    Best regards from Latvia
