shakshuka with crispy chickpeas

This is my take on the classic breakfast dish shakshuka: a spicy tomato sauce dish with baked eggs. I've had this main a time in a bougie brunch place in the Lower East Side, so I thought I'd do my version. I roasted a slab of chorizo in the oven with a can of chickpeas, which formed the perfect crispy garnish! Give this one a go guys (for brunch or brinner); I made this the first time round with the wonderful @brunchinpairs last summer!

  • 0.5 can chopped tomatoes
  • 0.5 onion finely diced
  • 0.5 red pepper finely diced
  • 1 garlic cloves minced
  • 0.25 stick of chorizo
  • 0.5 can chickpeas drained
  • ground cumin
  • smoked paprika
  • chili flakes
  • a bunch parsley roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp yoghurt plain
  • salt and pepper
  • olive oil


  • Pre-heat your oven to 200C. Split a stick of chorizo in half lengthways and place on a baking tray, along with your chickpeas. Season everything with salt, pepper, a pinch of paprika and olive oil. Roast in the oven for 15-20 minutes until crispy.
  • Meanwhile put a deep frying pan with a lid (or saucepan) onto a medium heat. Add a touch of oil, followed by the onion, pepper, garlic, and a teaspoon each of all your spices. Cook down for 5 minutes or so until soft.
  • Next, add your chopped tomatoes and half a can of water. Add some salt and pepper to taste, then bring to the boil. When boiling, put the lid on and turn down the pan to a simmer. Cook for 10-15 minutes.
  • Taste the sauce and adjust the seasoning. When you're ready for brunch, crack a couple of eggs into the sauce and cover. Cook for a couple of minutes until just set.
  • To serve, dish up your shakshuka into bowls, finishing with a slab of roasted chorizo, a scattering of chickpeas and parsley.
