    I love shakshuka and it’s always great to have a one pot dish-less cleaning up. When I was a kid my mum used to make a version of this that had zuccini and eggplant in it, my sister and I hated zuccini and eggplant (funny how tastes change) anyway we’d have a competition to see who could get the most zuccini/eggplant in their mouth and swallow it quickly without gagging. My mum must have really appreciated our enjoyment of her cooking! My Dad is European and was very strict at the table so we used to get in all sorts of trouble but I don’t think it stopped us To this day I prefer shakshuka without the above mentioned vegetables and will give this recipe a try. I found your blog when I was looking for a pistachio ice cream recipe and your recipe was great I’ve made it twice now and it’s my husbands favorite.

    This is one of my favorite dishes, but I haven’t made it in ages! Thanks for the reminder. I’ll definitely be making this soon.

    I have a funny story about Shakshuka. Much earlier in life when I was not really a foodie and I didn’t know how to cook, I made shakshuka only I had no idea there was actually a dish such as that. I just cracked egg after sautéing some onion and tomatoes. You know what I mean :) Last year when I learnt about this dish for the first time, I was like ‘ whaa, i used to cook that even before I knew how to cook’ LOL. I think I should post it sometime in my blog and share the story.

    That looks divine! I’ve found this sort of dish is so handy to whip up from pantry standards, when you can’t quite face a trip to the grocery store.

    Mmm, I love making shakshuka – and you’re right, it’s perfect for any time of day. I usually bulk it up a little with spicy crumbled sausage and thinly sliced potatoes, which makes it a lot less authentic but a lot more filling! It’s a great one to have in your repertoire.

    I remember stumbling upon Deb’s shakshuka recipe years ago and being like “Whaaaa? Eggs baked up in spicy tomato stuff? No way!” And then I never tried making it. :P I think it might have something to do with the fact that I dislike onions, cooked tomato chunks, and cooked peppers. (I know, totally hopeless, right?) But I love the idea of eggs + spicy tomato sauce, all piled on top of bread. It’s definitely a dish that needs some sort of veggie substance, though, so it’s not just a big pan of sauce. I wonder how it would be with mushrooms and greens? Probably good, although I feel like I’d be totally bastardizing the dish at that point!

    And hurray book club! (:

    Made this today for the first time I had heard about it from one of my best Iraqi Jewish sisters. I added mushrooms and black olives and baked it in the oven for 10 minutes at 350 rather than simmering. It was a big hit with the family although using 1/2 tsp of cayenne was a bit much for my kids they Ate it anyway with lots of ” it’s so spicy, but delicious “. Thank you for the recipe and it is now going to be a standard in our home.
