Eggplant and Chard Shakshuka

I often make egg curry and love shakshuka they are similar in concept with a different flavor profile. I love that with this recipe you can add vegetables and it has a nice smokiness to it.


  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp tomato purée
  • 4 tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin and coriander powder
  • 1/4 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 a bunch of Swiss chard chopped 
  • 8 small eggs 
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes or to desired level of heat
  • 1/2 an eggplant diced.
  • 1 handful of fresh parsley finely chopped
  • 1/2 a red onion chopped
  • a dash of chipotle pepper 
  • 1/2 a pack of mushrooms 


  1. Sauté the onion, with the eggplant, mushrooms and garlic in olive oil for 7-10 minutes, slowly adding the Swiss chard allowing it to reduce down. 
  2. Then add the tomatoes and allow them to reduce to a sauce with the cumin, coriander, paprika and chipotle pepper, salt to taste and a little red chili. 
  3. Add water and tomato paste to get the right consistency
  4. Then drop the eggs in one by one, making a little cavity for each and cover with a lid allowing them to poach for about 10 minutes, can cook for less if a runny yolk is desired, this is delicious with crusty bread to dip into it. 
  5. Sprinkle with fresh parsley to serve, can eat with bread or rice.
