A Recipe For Shakshuka

Shakshuka. Mmmm. This is something you must try at home.

Here is a picture of a shakshuka I made. It doesn't look very inviting - but take my word - it tastes great!

I will show you how to make it below (note that this is a recipe for two servings)...


  • 4 tomatoes, unpeeled – cut those into quarters
  • 6 cloves of garlic – chopped rough
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/5 cup olive or vegetable oil
  • 1 spoon tomato paste


  1. Pour the oil in a small saucepan and add the garlic. Cook on low flame for a couple of minutes. Add the tomatoes, salt, pepper, paprika and tomato paste. Bring to a simmer and then cook the whole thing uncovered, over low heat until you get a thick mush. Stir occasionally. This should take about 20 minutes or so.
  2. Break the eggs over your soft tomato mush, and continue to cook over low flame, while covered, for an additional 4-5 minutes.
  3. Bring the saucepan to the table and divide between a couple of plates.
  4. Enjoy hot with a piece of warm bread or pita.

There you go - if you wanted to know how to cook eggs in a new tasty way - just follow the above instructions.
