Shakshuka Verde

Shakshuka is a dish that’s been in my mind for a while. Those pans filled with tomato and eggs looks so great! And as I0m allergic to tomato, I can’t avoid crying a little when I can’t eat them or even try them.

But, as many other times, I have managed to adapt the dish so I can eat it. Jamie Oliver has a recipe of a Green Shakshuka and that gave me the idea; but my recipe is quite different.

And what’s my big surprise? It tastes very similar to “pisto” an amazing Spanish dish that is one of my all time favourites so I guess more and more Green Shakshukas are coming.

(English) Green Shakshuka

  • Serves: 2
  • Level: 2 dishes


  • ½ onion
  • 2 eggs
  • Olive Oil
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Dill
  • Parsley
  • ½ lemon juice
  • 120 grams peas
  • 100 grams Fresh spinach
  • 1 Garlic clove
  • White Cheese


  1. Chop the onion and the garlic.
  2. Put some olive oil into a frying pan and cook onion and garlic (medium heat) until onion starts to become transparent.
  3. Add the spinach and when they have reduced their size, add the peas with the lemon juice, dill, parsley, salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Cook for a couple of minutes and add the eggs.
  5. Let them cook for 3-4 minutes and cover the pan so the steam cooks the top of the eggs.
  6. Take off the heat and add the cheese.
