Recipe - Chakchouka

This is very reminiscent of Huevos Rancheros.  I didn't serve ours with eggs since it was a side, but next time I will make it with eggs.



  • 3 T olive oil
  • 2 T minced garlic
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1/2 t coriander
  • 1 onion (either yellow, white or red), diced
  • 6 tomatoes, skin removed (optional) and diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, skin removed (optional) and diced
  • 1 orange bell pepper, skin removed (optional) and diced
  • 1 cup water or broth
  • 4 eggs (optional, if you want to be vegan, obviously no eggs)


  1. Saute the onions, garlic, coriander and cumin in olive oil for 10 minutes.
  2. Add the bell peppers and saute 5 minutes.
  3. Add the tomatoes and simmer for at least 15 minutes.  Add water or broth to keep from drying out.
  4. If you are using eggs, make four small indentations in your Chakchouka and drop the eggs in.  Cover and simmer for about 10 minutes or until the eggs are cooked.
  5. Serve with couscous or bread.
