Simple, healthy, and colorful: This rainbow shakshuka has it all!

Shakshuka is a healthy and delicious breakfast or brunch dish that's easy to make and full of flavor. Here's a recipe for rainbow shakshuka that highlights the use of Rainbow Swiss Chard and Spinach, right from your Farmstand.


1 bunch

rainbow swiss chard, stems and leaves separated, chopped

1 bunch

spinach, stems and leaves separate, chopped


large onion, chopped

3 cloves

garlic, minced


green onions, chopped

2 Tbsp

olive oil

1 tsp

ground cumin

1/2 tsp

ground coriander

1/2 tsp


1/4 tsp

red pepper flakes

1/2 c

vegetable broth or water

4 - 6


to taste

salt and pepper


cherry tomatoes, chopped (for garnish)


parsley, chopped (for garnish)

Step 1

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the chopped onion and garlic, and cook until softened and translucent, about 5-7 minutes.

Step 2

Add the chopped chard stems and green onions to the skillet, and cook for another 5 minutes, or until they have softened.

Step 3

Add the chopped chard leaves to the skillet, along with the cumin, coriander, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Cook until the chard leaves have wilted, about 3-5 minutes.

Step 4

Pour the vegetable broth or water into the skillet, and stir to combine. Allow the mixture to simmer for a few minutes, or until the liquid has reduced slightly.

Step 5

Use a spoon to make small indentations in the chard mixture, and crack an egg into each indentation. Season the eggs with salt and pepper.

Step 6

Cover the skillet and cook until the eggs are cooked to your liking, about 5-8 minutes. For runny yolks, cook for 5 minutes; for fully cooked yolks, cook for 8 minutes.

Step 7

Once the eggs are cooked, remove the skillet from the heat and garnish with chopped parsley, if desired.

Step 8

Serve the green shakshuka hot, with toasted bread or pita on the side for dipping and scooping up the flavorful chard mixture and runny yolks. Enjoy!
