Simon’s breakfast or anytime Shakshuka

Nourish Champion Simon Gale has shared the recipe for this nutritious breakfast. He says: ‘Start your day with this epic, hearty breakfast dish from Israel. It’s something of an institution there and shared in a large pot straight to the table of many families. I love the fiery mix of roasted peppers, sweet cherry tomatoes, beans, garlic and authentic spices, cumin, caraway and smoky paprika, all topped off with a layer of baked eggs. Serve with crispy toasted bread.


Serves 4-5
Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 1 hour


  • 600g cherry tomatoes
  • 400g roasted red and yellow peppers
  • 600g mixed beans
  • 1 small sourdough loaf, torn into pieces
  • 150g Pepperdew peppers
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 2 large bay leaves
  • 1/2 tablespoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon caraway seeds
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • Sea salt & black pepper
  • 4-5 large eggs
  • small handful parsley, to serve
  • feta cheese, to serve


Preheat oven to 180°C.

Put all the ingredients, except the eggs, into a large casserole dish. Give it a gentle stir and bake for 50 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Crack the eggs on to the baked mixture with the lid off, baking for the final 10 minutes.

Serve with a dusting of paprika, freshly milled black pepper, crumbs of feta cheese and a large handful of freshly chopped parsley. And share.
