Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium Vidalia onion diced, about 1 cup
  • 1 small fennel diced, about 1 cup
  • 3 cloves garlic thinly sliced
  • 1 large jalapeño finely diced
  • 1 tsp Aleppo pepper
  • 1 tsp Za'atar
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 bunches Swiss chard stems removed, discarded, and leaves roughly chopped; see note below
  • ¼ cup fresh herbs such as dill, cilantro, and parsley, finely chopped, plus more for serving
  • ½ cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • 5 oz feta cheese divided
  • 5 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 ½ tsp Kosher salt divided
  • ½ freshly ground black pepper divided
  • Tahini for serving
  • Flaky sea salt for serving

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400 F. Sauté the vegetables. Heat oil in a large skillet, then sauté onion, fennel, jalapeño, and garlic over medium heat for 3-5 minutes.

  • Flavor with spices. Season with Aleppo pepper, Za'atar, and cumin. Stir to thoroughly mix.
  • Add vegetables. To the pan, add chopped Swiss chard (and spinach, if using) and fresh herbs (cilantro, dill, parsley), then season with 1 tsp Kosher salt and ¼ tsp black pepper.

  • Pour in stock. Add stock, then cover the pan and allow the greens to cook down for a few minutes. Stir in crumbled feta cheese.
  • Add eggs. Make wells for the eggs, then carefully crack one into each. Season the eggs with remaining Kosher salt and black pepper.
    Green shakshuka before baking
  • Bake the shakshuka. Transfer skillet to a preheated oven, then bake for 7-10 minutes, or until whites are just set and egg yolks are still runny. Oven temperatures vary, so begin checking at 7 minutes and increase time as needed.

  • Finish the shakshuka and serve. Drizzle with tahini (optional, but highly recommended!) and lots of fresh herbs. Sprinkle a tiny pinch of flaky sea salt on top of each egg, then serve immediately with pita bread or sliced challah!

Notes

  • Can substitute Swiss chard with 1 bunch Swiss chard and an equal amount of baby spinach. Alternatively, you can use any combination of leafy greens such as kale, dandelion greens, mustard greens, etc.
  • Shakshuka is best eaten the day of, or you risk the eggs overcooking as they reheat. 
  • If you don't have chicken stock or vegetable stock, substitute with water.
