Hi guys, it is a time to post a breakfast recipe, and what can be better than “Shakshuka”, and no, it’s not a spell from Harry Potter :), it is a delicious typical Israeli breakfast that really can be eaten as lunch or even dinner.

So what is so special about this dish, that everybody who tries it wants more and more… It is a dish of eggs poached in think spicy sauce of onions, papers, and tomatoes. The best way to eat it is with Challah or Pita bread (and of course for those of us who are gluten free, we can always substitute it to gluten free bread or pita)

Ingredients :

  1. Onion- 1 medium diced
  2. Red Bell Pepper- 1 medium diced
  3. Garlic- 2 medium cloves  crushed
  4. Tomatoes- 5 medium soft tomatoes
  5. Eggs – 8 medium
  6. Parsley- 1/2 cup
  7. Salsa – Thick & Chunky  – 1 cup
  8. Korean Chili Sauce – 1 table spoon
  9. Smoked Paprika – 2 tea spoon
  10. Salt- 1 tea spoon
  11. Cumin – 1/4 tea spoon
  12. Avocado Oil – 3 table spoon


In a deep Saute Pan add the Avocado Oil and heat it up on medium heat. Add the onions, and pepper and saute for about 5 minutes.


Next, add the salsa, spices, and tomatoes – stir very well and cover on low heat  for 10-15 minutes.


Remove the lid and make indentation in the sauce to pour the eggs ( as shown in the picture) and cook until the eggs turn white- about 10 minutes on low heat.


Add parsley and cook for another 5 minutes.


Please try to make this dish yourself, and you will see how super easy it is… Leave a comment on my page and let me know how much you enjoyed it 🙂

    1. Ohhh, thank you for noticing that I forgot to mention the eggs in the ingredients 😰 Going to add it right now 😉
      I used 8 eggs in my recipe but you could fit probably 2 more if you need too. Basically go by the size of your pan and see how many will fit comfortably
