Green Shakshuka

Green Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a popular Middle Eastern dish. It normally has a tomato base but we’ve included a mountain of fresh greens to make a nutritious and delicious Green Shakshuka. Perfect for a lavish breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Prep time: 5-10 mins Cooking time: 10-15 mins Serves: 4


5 eggs (we love Woodland)
½ bag spinach leaves (we love The Fresh Grower)
3 baby leeks, sliced thinly
1 cup shelled edamame beans, thawed
1 cup frozen peas, thawed
1 tbsp butter (we love Anchor)
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil (we love Olivado)
2 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 tsp cumin seeds
Salt and pepper

To Serve:
2 tsp chilli flakes
Handful of dill, roughly chopped (we love Superb Herb)
2 New Zealand Avocados, halved and sliced
Crusty bread
Butter (we love Anchor)

We used a kale coloured Le Creuset Signature Shallow Casserole dish.


  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a heavy based frying pan. Fry the leeks and garlic, until soft.
  2. Add the cumin seeds to the pan and for a minute. Stir in the spinach, edamame and peas and fry for 1-2 minutes, until bubbling and hot.
  3. With a spoon make 5 wells for the eggs in the frying pan and crack the eggs in. Cover with a lid and cook until the whites are cooked through. Sprinkle with sea salt and pepper and take off the heat.
  4. Serve with chopped dill, chilli flakes and sliced avocados. Eat hot with your favourite crusty bread.
