This Spicy Shakshuka with Feta is a deliciously healthy breakfast dish, traditionally made with a bit of added spice! It’s naturally vegetarian and gluten-free, and can be made Whole30 compliant!
Contrary to my usual pancake-loving self, I have started to absolutely love Mediterranean breakfasts. My tall dark and handsome Middle Eastern boyfriend is mostly to blame, but it allows me to create dishes like this Spicy Shakshuka with Feta to share with you!
Shakshuka, or Shakshouka as it is traditionally spelled, is either Israeli or Palestinian. Apparently, there’s a big fight about who came up with it first, so we’re just going to move on.
Part of what makes healthy eating sustainable is coming up with a lot of variety in your dishes. My usual favorite breakfasts include these Paleo Blueberry Muffins and these Cheesy Bacon Hashbrowns, both of which are easy to make and absolutely delicious.
As far as Mediterranean breakfast goes, it typically includes a lot of vegetables and some protein. This Ultimate Mediterranean Breakfast is a perfect example of all of the delicious components that can go into a Mediterranean breakfast, which reminds me that I need to make a Mediterranean-inspired board of my own..coming soon!
Make this Spicy Shakshuka with Feta
Shakshuka recipes are typically easy to make compared to a lot of Israeli breakfast recipes. I usually make mine in a dutch oven or a cast iron skillet, so it heats evenly. It’s one of those dishes that can be completely open to interpretation in terms of spice, ingredients, whether it’s vegetarian or includes meat, etc.
- Fire roasted tomatoes
- Red onion
- Feta cheese
To start, add minced garlic, chopped red onion, and olive oil to a pan or dutch oven and sauté until soft. Then, add in a mix of chili powder, paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper and let them sweat within the mixture.
Then, add in chopped or diced tomatoes. I like using Muir Glen fire roasted tomatoes because of the extra flavor profile they add, but regular canned tomatoes work well too! Let everything simmer together to build up flavor.
To finish off this Spicy Shakshuka with Feta, top with feta cheese and poached eggs. You also have the option to create craters in the sauce and crack the eggs inside to poach them within the sauce. Then, serve and top with feta. Depends on if you know how to poach an egg! If you’d like to learn, here is a guide on how to make the perfect poached egg.
