Seasonal tastes better: Green Shakshuka with spinach and Swiss chard

This post contains ads. Not for a product and also not for a consideration on my part for money. But because at the end of the post I link a bunch of love-friendly bloggers, who also contribute great recipe ideas to "Seasonal Tastes Better"!

Also this month it's time for tasty seasonal dishes: Seasonal it tastes better! And in June we have a variety of great vegetables to choose from: cauliflower | Fennel | Broccoli | Kohlrabi | Spinach | Swiss Chard | Radish | Pointed cabbage and carrots. In fact, at the end of the post, you will see that the cauliflower is clearly ahead of the pack. As a little rebel I chose spinach and chard because of that ... In fact you get a green shakshuka with spinach and chard . And there are also a few new potatoes and green peas. I have already published a similar recipe for a quick chard with garlic yoghurt in the blog almost 7 years ago. At the time I did not know Shakshuka and the photos are rather embarrassing. But hey, you can see a development here in the blog after all!

Shakshuka (or Shakshuka written) is a typical dish of North African or Israeli cuisine. They are known above all as a pan-fried dish with tomatoes, onions and eggs. Mostly it is served for breakfast. So a green shakshuka is a slightly freer option and yes, I know that this is not a traditional dish, but a variation. It's like a green stir-fry that's just served like a shakshuka. I would also rather enjoy the dish for lunch or dinner.

Green Shakshuka - freely interpreted

There are many variations, especially with green vegetables. Mostly it is green leafy vegetables that are simply steamed. After that, eggs are whipped over and cooked to fried eggs. I've opted for a blend of Swiss chard and spinach - both available fresh and seasonal this month. As an additional side dish and to serve my green shakshuka as a hearty dinner, I bring new potatoes into play! They are first cooked and then roasted crispy. You already have a quick and tasty vegetarian dish in the pan!toasted bread, pita or pita bread



Clean the potatoes well, but do not peel and cook in a little salted water Steam. Let something evaporate. Alternatively, you can use simply roasted potatoes from the day before.


Heat some olive oil in a sufficiently large and deep pan. Roast the potatoes until golden brown at high heat. Reduce the temperature and add chard and spinach. Put the lid on and blanch the vegetables for about 3-4 minutes until it collapses. Add garlic, parsley, mint and peas and season well with salt and pepper. Put the lid on again and simmer again for about 3 minutes.

4 Form two wells in the vegetables and whip the two eggs in it. Replace the lid and continue to cook the shakshuka at low temperature until the eggs have settled.

In the Meanwhile, smooth the yoghurt and stir and season with salt and pepper.
