SHAKSHUKA INDIVIDUAL_SHAKSHUKA_1 SHAKSHUKA_hominy_feta Hey guys! We’re still on a little bit of a high from our book release yesterday, yay! Since its been a little chilly in LA (apologies to everyone not in California that finds me calling our weather “chilly” extremely annoying!!) I’ve been indulging in shakshuka lately. I love this stuff. Nothing like a flavorful, aromatic and stewy tomato sitch, topped with runny eggs to really hit the spot on a cold day.

While I really love shakshuka, I also like things with a lot of texture, so I’ll usually add something to “bulk” it up a bit. I had originally planned to add garbanzo beans to this recipe, but when it came time to meet at the studio and shoot the dish, I realized I totally forgot to bring some with me! So a quick little scan of our pantry led me to a lonely can of hominy lying around. Turns out, shakshuka with hominy is delicious! Yay for happy mistakes!

If you’re looking for a quick and easy chilly day meal that’s hearty but not heavy, this simple shakshuka with hominy and feta is a really great option. Enjoy! xx, Jenny

    This looks and sounds great but I’m a little confused. Are you cooking the eggs separately and then placing them on top or are you cooking the eggs in a ramekin of sauce?

      I think it means crack the eggs into ramekins so you can gently slide them onto the skillet without the yolks breaking, then cook in the skillet. Correct me if I’m wrong though!

    I just got a handy dandy new egg-poacher… so, will poach the eggs separately, spoon the Shakshuka into ramekins and top with eggs, feta and cilantro. This looks wonderful – I’ve not seen a Shakshuka recipe that calls for hominy or chickpeas, but I love the idea. A hit of additional fiber. Making this weekend for “Sunday Brek” at my house! Thank you!

    Am going to try this tonight, My taste buds are telling me that this will be very very good. Unfortunately you can’t get everything in Spain, where we live, as you would in America, so I may have to improvise.

    I’m so happy someone finally posted a shakashuka recipe for one!I live alone and sometimes it is just hard to convert a recipe to a single portion. And shakashuka is just the best thing.

    It would be nice to know the size skillet you are recommending for this single serving recipe. This reads so tasty!

      I used a 6 inch skillet for this recipe, but using an 8″ skillet should be just fine!
