Chickpea Shakshuka

Ingredients for 2 hearty servings

  • Spray olive oil or avocado oil
  • 1 can (15oz) no salt added chickpea (garbanzo beans)
  • Pinch of sea salt & pepper
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 can (14.5oz) crushed tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons store-bought harissa
    • SUB: your favorite hot sauce
  • 4oz can green chiles, mild or medium
  • sea salt & pepper to taste
  • Garnish
    • fresh parsley
    • toasted sourdough
    • feta crumbles or goat cheese (optional)


Step 1

Set a carbon steel skillet on medium high heat. Once hot, spray with oil and add the chickpeas and the seasonings.  Toss the chickpeas in the seasonings and allow them to sear for 2 – 3 minutes.

Step 2

Reduce the heat to medium, then add tomatoes, harissa and green chiles.  Stir and let simmer for another 3 – 5 minutes, then season to taste with sea salt & pepper.

Step 3

Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy with a slice of toasted sourdough.  If you would like a pop of creamy flavor, add a tablespoon of feta/goat cheese to each serving.
