WLS-friendly recipe: Shakshouka


Pronounced shuck·shoo·kuh, which loosely translates to “all mixed up” in Arabic, this rich and tasty dish is sure to wow your brunch-time taste buds.


Here's what you'll need:

  • 1 white onion, sliced
  • 2 bell peppers, sliced
  • 2 x 400g cans chopped tomatoes
  • 4 eggs
  • ¼ cup (15g) parsley leaves, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • salt & pepper



  1. Heat the oil a large non-stick frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the onion and bell peppers, stirring constantly, and cook, for 5 minutes or until the onion and pepper have softened.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes and cook, stirring for a further 5 minutes. 
  3. Use a spoon to make 4 large holes in the tomato mixture, then crack an egg into each hole. Reduce the heat to low, and partially cover the pan with a lid. Cook for 10 minutes or until eggs are cooked to your liking. Sprinkle with parsley and serve immediately.
