What Is Shakshuka?

Shakshuka (also spelled Shakshouka or Chakchouka) is a savory dish of eggs poached in a flavorful smoky and spicy tomato sauce.

This tomato-based stew is popular in Middle Eastern regions, in North Africa and it’s a staple dish in Israel. You can have it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

Shakshuka Without Eggs

Since I am a vegan, I left out the eggs and added chickpeas and greens for healthy plant-based protein. Do you miss the flavor of eggs? I don’t (never really liked eggs) but if you do, don’t worry because there is a solution. It’s called “Kala Namak” or black salt and it has an eggy flavor.

I love this dish because it is:

  1. Vegan, spicy, flavorful, smoky
  2. Great as a weeknight dinner or lunch
  3. Pairs well with rice, flatbread, pita or even pasta

How To Make Vegan Shakshuka?

This dish is seriously very simple and can be made in one pot or pan! Check out the following step-by-step instruction photos and explanation below.

  1. Sautè onion and garlic in a pan.
  2. Add your favorite greens (see different options below).
  3. Add all spices. My favorite spices for Shakshuka are paprika, smoked paprika, cumin, oregano, black pepper, red pepper flakes, a pinch of black salt.
  4. Add chopped tomatoes and red pepper.
  5. Next, add the marinara sauce.
  6. Stir and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
  7. Then add chickpeas and plant-based cream.
  8. You can also add dollops of vegan cheese of choice but this step is optional.

Use Your Favorite Greens

I love to make this vegan Shakshuka with Tatsoi greens. However, you can also use the following greens:

  • Kale
  • Spinach
  • Chard
  • Choy Sum
  • Or any leafy greens of choice

  • Onion, garlic
  • Greens
  • Tomatoes, bell pepper

    Just made the recipe this evening for dinner. Instead of coconut cream are used a heaping tablespoon of kite Hill cream cheese and some almond milk that I make myself. My husband ate it with a piece of bread on the side and I sprinkled vegan cheese on the top of mine. It was very very good. As always thank you for your gluten-free vegan delicious recipes.

    Great recipe and easy to make! I made it this weekend with some butternut squash on the side. Thank you, your recipes serve as a great inspiration in my newly started vegan diet! 🙂 Especially I like that most of the recipes are gluten-free as well.
