Veg & Chickpea Shakshuka - Wasted Recipe

Veg & Chickpea Shakshuka - Wasted Recipe

Chickpeas are delicious and full of protein and we always have some in the cupboard or freezer.  

One of our favourite things to do is to combine them with a Wasted Kitchen Dahl and, or tinned tomatoes and any veg that is lurking in the fridge and make Wasted Kitchen 'Shakshuka.  Delicious as a last minute brunch, dinner, breakfast or lunch!

Here's our (very flexible) recipe - serves 2 generously.

Tomato Soup Stew or Shakshuka


  • A chopped onion - we keep pre cut onion in the freezer to save time
  • Clove or two of garlic - chopped
  • 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 (optional) - can or equivalent cooked
  • Tinned Tomatoes and/ or Wasted Dahl (or other Dahl!) 
  • Eggs - optional
  • Feta / Plain Yoghurt- optional
  • Spinach/ Rocket - optional
  • Fry off the spices with 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 if frozen) - if using.  
  • 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 or yoghurt if you have some
  • Tadaaah!  Delicious meal made from larder ingredients and leftovers.
