Veg & Chickpea Shakshuka - Wasted Recipe

Chickpeas are delicious and we always have a can or two in the cupboard or some frozen.  Combine with a Wasted Dahl and/ or tinned tomatoes and a handful of ingredients you might find lurking around in the fridge make a great last minute dinner, breakfast or brunch!  

Here's our (very flexible) recipe for Chickpea, Wasted Dahl Shakshuka - serves 2 generously

Tomato Soup Stew or Shakshuka


  • An onion
  • Clove or two of garlic
  • Something to spice it up - we use cumin and chilli but coriander, paprika are good too
  • Veg (optional)- courgette, peppers, aubergines, celery... (dig out whatever needs using/ is in the bottom of the veg box that you don't know what to do with)
  • Chickpeas - can or equivalent cooked (optional if no veg)
  • Tinned Tomatoes and/ or Wasted Dahl (or other Dahl!) 
  • Eggs - optional
  • Feta - optional
  • Spinach/ Rocket - optional
  • Fry off the spices an onion and clove of garlic until soft (use a large frying pan, saucepan or wok). 
  • Add tomato and/ or Dahl  - we used a 300 ml jar or tub of our Wasted Dahl
  • Add a can of drained chickpeas (or equivalent cooked) - if using.  If you've got a load of other veg to use up you might not need them.
  • Turn hob down or put in preheated oven at 160 for 25 minutes
  • At the last minute stir any spinach or rocket you might have lying around through it
  • If you are feeling fancy or find yourself doing this for breakfast break an egg or three in and let them cook
  • Sprinkle w Feta if you have some
  • Tadaaah!  Serve up with bread and maybe a dollop of yoghurt
