Spinach Shakashuka

These are North African inspired poached eggs with spinach instead of the traditional tomato sauce. A great way to ingest your greens in the morning!


1 tsp. of salt
3 cups of fresh spinach
2 green bell peppers minced
2 cups of chopped tomatoes and carrots
1 tsp cumin
1/4 cup of olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
Freshly ground black pepper
4 large eggs
Harissa powder or paprika for sprinkling on top
1/4 cup of celery leaves minced


1Heat large skillet (with a lid) on medium heat.
2Add oil, onions, bell peppers, chopped tomatoes, carrots and all the spices
3Add rest of ingredients except the eggs. Let everything sauté for 15 mins or until soft. Onions should be translucent and spinach will wilt and release liquid.
4Once mixture is soft, and beginning to boil with liquid add the eggs. Place the lid onto the skillet and turn heat down to low. Poach eggs in veggie sauce/mixture for 7-10 mins (until yolk is at desired softness or hardness.) Remove from heat and turn off burner.
5Sprinkle with celery leaves and Harissa/paprika. Enjoy hot!
