Easy green shakshuka

Isn’t it funny how you seem to find shakshuka’s now all of a sudden in almost every single blog and even restaurants have picked up on the hype. It’s a thing.. Most shakshuka’s you’ll find are of the red variety with loads of tomatoes and while that is also delicious I am sharing this version which is from Sarah Wilson’s book Simplicious (which I absolutely love!!) and it features lots of green goodness. Looking for a way to increase your intake of green vegetables? Look no further!

This easy and simple green shakshuka is whole30 approved and we love eating it. It is a bit of work cutting all the vegetables but it is totally worth it.

  • 1 tbsp of butter
  • 3 spring onions
  • 450 gr of green vegetables (we used courgette, sugarsnaps, asparagus and fennel) Sliced thinly or in cubes
  • 1/2 tsp of cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili flakes (or tabasco if you don’t have flakes)
  • 2 handfuls of leafy greens (we used kale and spinach, but you can add parsley, basil, fennel front, beetroot leaves etc.)
  • sea salt and fresh black pepper
  • 2-3 eggs
  • 3 tbsp of pesto (homemade or store bought)


  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the spring onions, green vegetables and the cumin. Saute for 5-7 minutes. Add the chilli flakes and the leafy greens and let them wilt for a bit. Season with salt and peper and stir the pesto through it.
  2. Create two or three divots in your mixture and crack the eggs in. Reduce the heat to low, put a lid on the pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until the eggs are done

    Yum! We made a shakshuka once that was more tomato based, but I love the idea of using healthy green veggies!
