Spectacular Spinach Shakshuka Recipe Shakes Up Breakfast, Lunch, Brunch or Dinner

Shakshuka is a Northwest African dish of eggs in a sauce made of tomatoes, olive oil, peppers, garlic and seasonings. This lighter version of shakshuka is made with fresh spinach instead of tomatoes.

Cook Time: 20 minutes
Total Time: 30 minutes
Servings: 2 to 4


  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, seeds and ribs removed and finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
  • 10 ounces fresh baby spinach
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 4 - 6 eggs

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and jalapeno. Cook, stirring often, until soft, about 6 minutes. Add the garlic, coriander, cinnamon and salt. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute.
  2. Add the spinach and lemon juice. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until spinach as wilted, about 5 to 6 minutes. When wilted, spread the spinach evenly on the bottom of the pan. Make indentions for each egg.
