Shakshuka is a classic Middle Eastern breakfast dish that consists of poaching eggs in a smoky, spicy tomato based sauce. If you’re not familiar, get ready to add a new recipe to your rotation. Not only is it fun to say… shack-shoe-kah …but it’s a totally customizable comfort food dish. In this recipe, we added roasted red pepper hummus for a creamy twist.

While we’re always partial to protein based breakfasts, we especially love those made in one pan! The add of hummus in this sauce provides a nice heartiness and the fresh parsley brings a bright note to round out the tomato sauce. This is the perfect meal to make for a group, especially when served with pita or toasted challah bread for dunking and dipping.

For a light and tasty twist, we opted to use chickpeas as the base for this salad, but if you’re craving a more classic chicken salad recipe, you can easily swap or add shredded chicken. Also instead of serving on toasted bread, we recommend using crisp butter lettuce cups, which can even be rolled up and enjoyed on the go as a wrap!


Serves: 4

  1. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  2. 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  3. 1, 12oz jar roasted red bell pepper strips (or whole roasted pepper, sliced)
  4. 1/3 cup chopped kalamata olives
  5. 1, 24oz jar marinara sauce (or spicy marinara, garlic, etc.)
  6. 1/2 cup Blue Moose Organic Roasted Red Pepper Hummus
  7. 4 large eggs
  8. Pita
  9. Toppings: feta, parsley, black pepper


  1. Heat a 10 or 12-inch cast iron pan (or oven-safe pan) over medium heat with the oil.
  2. Add the chopped onion and cook for 6-8 minutes until well softened.
  3. Stir in the pepper strips, olives, and marinara.
  4. Stir in the hummus.
  5. Taste and add a pinch more salt if needed.
  6. With a spoon, create a small well and slowly pour in 1 egg. Do this 3 more times.
  7. Turn oven on to broil.
  8. Cover pan with a lid, reduce heat to low, and cook until whites are starting to set about 5-7 minutes. Check at 4 minutes to see where they’re at.
  9. Place pan (uncovered) under the broiler and cook until eggs are done to your liking, about 1-2 minutes. Watch closely, as they will cook very fast!
  10. Top with parsley, feta, and black pepper.
  11. Serve immediately with pita and hummus
