  • 1 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 3 Cups Chopped Kale
  • 1 Leek washed and sliced
  • Cups Frozen Peas thawed
  • 2 Garlic Cloves minced
  • Small pack coriander, roughly chopped reserving a few leaves to garnish
  • Small pack mint, leaves picked and roughly chopped reserving a few leaves to garnish
  • ¾ Cup Sour Cream or Greek Yogurt
  • 1 Tbsp Lime Juice
  • 1 Tsp Ground Cumin Seeds

Optional toppings

  • Cilantro, sliced avocado, jalapenos, and feta


  • 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.
  • Once the eggs are done, garnish the shakshuka with remaining fresh herbs and serve. Enjoy!


  • Veggies: add any of your favorite green veggies if you don't like kale and peas. Some great options can be spinach and zucchini.
  • Allow veggies to cook through before adding the eggs
  • Covering the pan/skillet will let the eggs cook through without burning the veggies.
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat in the microwave when ready to eat.
