We vouch that this is one of the best green Shakshuka recipes out there. It is a delicious twist to the classic shakshuka dish which is made with a spicy tomato base. Alternatively, a green shakshuka is made with a leafy and creamy vegetable base. The base is a mix of kale, leeks, peas, some fresh herbs, and yogurt.  Enjoy for breakfast or brunch or have it as a meatless Monday meal.

How to make Green Shakshuka

  • First of all, heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add garlic and cumin; sauté until fragrant. Add leeks together with peas and cook stirring frequently for about 4 minutes.
  • Stir in kale, coriander, and mint leaves; season with some salt and pepper. Continue to cook for about 3-4 minutes until kale is wilted.

  • Reduce the heat to a low and stir in sour cream or yogurt. Mix well to coat the greens. Using the back of a spoon, make 4 dips in the mixture, then crack an egg into each dip.
  • Season the eggs with a pinch of salt. Cover the pan and cook on low heat until eggs are done to your liking.
  • Finally, once the eggs are done, garnish the shakshuka with remaining fresh herbs and serve.
    Enjoy!

Can you reheat shakshuka in the microwave

Yes, you can save your leftover shakshuka and reheat later. You may use the microwave or your stovetop. Even though some may not recommend reheating eggs in the microwave, we have found this method to be just fine. Also, another option will be adding the shakshuka to a skillet with a tad bit of water and oil, then reheat at a low setting.

How long does Shakshuka last in the fridge

Store leftover Shakshuka in the fridge for 5-7 days. Place in a tightly sealed container and reheat when needed. Furthermore, we do not recommend freezing this Green Shakshuka recipe.

What to serve with Shakshuka

Shakshuka is mainly served as a breakfast meal. You may serve with some whole-grain toast, pita bread, naan, and whole-grain crackers. Similarly, to serve shakshuka over dinner, you can have them with a side of rice or quinoa, grits, some salad like this chickpea salad, Hummus or roasted potatoes.

Can you eat Shakshuka the next day

Whether you prefer your shakshuka warm or cold, it is perfectly fine to save and eat it the following day. Also,  this easy shakshuka recipe is perfect for those who would like to meal prep for a few days since they can also be enjoyed cold.
