- Time50-60 mins
A vibrant Middle Eastern favorite, shakshuka features a delectable sauce of tomatoes, peppers and onions that’s perfect for poaching the dish’s classic, silky eggs. We’re filling our version with a combination of peppers (including petite tinkerbells and green bell pepper) and crisp pea shoots, highlighting some of late summer’s brightest produce. Oven-toasted pita chips dusted with savory za’atar make the perfect, crunchy side for scooping up the shakshuka.

1Prepare the ingredients:
Preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry the fresh produce. Small dice the potatoes. Cut out and discard the stem, ribs and seeds of the bell pepper; medium dice. Peel and small dice the shallot. Core and medium dice the tomato. Cut out and discard the stems, ribs and seeds of the tinkerbell peppers; cut crosswise into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Roughly chop the parsley leaves and stems. Finely chop the pea shoots. Cut each pita into 8 equal-sized wedges.
2Brown the potatoes:
In a medium pan (nonstick and oven-safe, if you have one), heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the potatoes; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 7 to 9 minutes, or until browned and slightly tender. Transfer to a bowl. Wipe out the pan.
3Start the sauce:
In the same pan, heat 2 teaspoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the bell pepper and shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 4 minutes, or until lightly browned and slightly softened. Add the tomato paste and season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 3 minutes, or until dark red and fragrant.
4Finish the sauce:
Add the tomato, tinkerbell peppers, browned potatoes, ⅔ of the parsley, half the za’atar and 1¼ cups of water to the pan; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 6 to 8 minutes, or until thickened and saucy. Turn off the heat and stir in the pea shoots. Season with salt and pepper to taste. (If your pan isn’t oven-safe, transfer the finished sauce to a baking dish.)
5Make the pita chips:
While the sauce cooks, place the pitas on a sheet pan. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and the remaining za’atar; turn to thoroughly coat. Arrange in a single, even layer and toast in the oven 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly browned and fragrant. Remove from the oven (leaving the oven on) and transfer to a serving dish.
6Bake the shakshuka & serve your dish:
Using a spoon, create 2 wells into the center of the pan of finished sauce. Crack an egg into each well; season with salt and pepper. Bake 6 to 8 minutes, or until the egg whites are set and the yolks are cooked to your desired degree of doneness. Remove from the oven and let cool for 2 minutes. Evenly sprinkle the cheese over the shakshuka. Garnish with the remaining parsley and a drizzle of olive oil. Serve with the pita chips on the side. Enjoy!
