Shakshouka (Chakchouka) is easy to make Perfect for Vegetarians. A Popular Middle Eastern Recipe with its origins from Tunis. It is very popular in Tunis, Egypt, Algeria, Yemen, Somalia and now the rest of the world. Simple yet so tasty. Let's get started.


1- Heat the oil in a large pan

2- Add the onions red and green peppers to the onion and saute for about 4 minutes or until the onions become almost golden. (Burnt Onions don't go well with Shakshuka:)

3- Add the tomatoes, cover the pan with its lid and cook over medium heat for about 8 to 10 minutes or until the tomatoes are cooked well.

4- Crack the eggs over the tomato onion mixture and let them cook covered for about 3 minutes. Do not disturb the egg yolks at this point.

5- Once the eggs are set but the yolks are still quiet soft, break the yolks with the tip of a spatula and mix gently with the tomato onion mixture. Cook for about 2 minutes more. Serve hot with pita bread, french bread or any type of bread you prefer.


  1. 4 eggs
  2. 3 large tomatoes peeled and finely cut
  3. 1/2 green bell pepper finely chopped
  4. 1/2 red pepper finely chopped
  5. 1 onion finely chopped
  6. 1 fresh chili finely chopped (optional)
  7. 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  8. Salt to season
Shakshuka is used for egg dishes in Egypt and if you order it you will not necessarily get this dish so make sure you are clear of what you want when ordering in a restaurant.
