But for the last few months I’ve been thinking about this idea of a green version. So finally last week I made it. And it. was. glorious.
Back up. What is Shakshuka?
Shakshuka is a North African dish made of eggs poached in a mixture of sautéed tomatoes, peppers, onions, and spices. You typically eat it with a spoon and/or bread, the bread basically being a spoon-like vessel for all that delicious smokey spicy tomato goodness.
And Green Shakshuka?
Omg let me tell you! This green version is pretty much the same as the traditional dish, it’s just made with green peppers instead of red peppers, and green tomatoes instead of red tomatoes. I also added in some hatch green chilis and jalapeños for extra smokey spicy flavor. The result is just as tasty, and (gasp!) even more beautiful.
And in my mind, what’s a proper egg breakfast without cheese? I topped my Green Shakshuka with crumbled feta, which made for a delicious salty finish.
