Shakshuka is a classic Middle Eastern dish that is packed full of flavour and goodness. It is my go-to breakfast after a night out - comforting, delicious and easy to whip up. 


2 red onions - chopped

2 large tomatoes - chopped

2 cloves of garlic - minced

A handful of coriander - separate the leaves from the stork

1tsp Paprika

1 tbsp - wholegrain mustard

2 tbsp tomato pureé

2 large eggs


Heat a little olive oil in a large pan

Add the red onion to the pan and fry until soft - about 5 minutes

Add the crushed garlic, coriander stork and the paprika - stir through

Add the wholegrain mustard and the tomato pureé  

Add a little water and stir everything through.

Turn the heat low and let everything simmer down until the sauce thickens.

With the back of a wooden spoon make two holes in the sauce and into them crack your eggs.

Put the lid on the pan and let the eggs cook for 5-7 minutes.

To finish sprinkle over the coriander leaves.

Serve with thick, crusty bread.

    Hi Nicolas! I watch you regularly on YouTube, and have helped me during very difficult times. I love your relaxing videos and all you cook, bake and do. You show us the most beautiful things and places and give us a glimmer of hope when we cannot carry out our lives in the best way possible sometimes.
    This recipe reminds me of an old Sicilian recipe my mom used to make. You basically use what you have and I think every province and country has their spin on this. I love it anytime.
    I was wondering I never came across it but do you have something in regards to all the botanical prints you have on your walls at your previous residence? I love them the matting and gold frames but cannot find an economical way to pull it off. Did you list where you got your frames? I can do the prints, but the frames, no such luch.
    Do you have downloads of the prints or anything else? I recall you talking about an ebook. I tried downloading the first one but PP never went through so I never got it.
    Ok, going to relax with a tea and watch back your older videos on cooking and baking! I can never tire of tea sandwich videos. I can watch you make them over and over!
    Warmest wishes from Canada,
    Rose aka Canadian Jane on Youtube
