Chakchouka – A Tunisian dish of tomatoes, onions, peppers, spices, and eggs. With or without a Thermomix

Traditionally eaten for breakfast in North Africa, this spicy and colourful pepper, onions and tomato stew with eggs baked on top make a lovely and very healthy dinner or an impressive dinner party dish.

This is a very easy recipe but don’t be fooled, the flavours are amazing and very rich.

Before you start, note that ideally your peppers and tomatoes will need to be peeled. I personally use this tomato peeler.

Serve with a crusty bread or pitta bread to sponge off the sauce, couscous or even rice. I also sometimes serve it with merguez sausages.

  5. Ideally peel the tomatoes with a tomato peeler (this is the one I use), cut them in 4, scoops the seeds out and add the seedless tomatoes to the bowl with 1 heaped tsp caster sugar, 2 tbsp tomato puree, 1 tsp mild chilli powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp ground coriander and a pinch of cayenne pepper. Cook for 25 minutes / 100C / Reverse speed low.
  6. Pour the vegetables in an oven proof dish. Sprinkle with feta cheese. Crack in 4 eggs. Bake in the oven for 3 minutes.

Sprinkle with fresh coriander and serve with a crusty bread or pitta bread to sponge off the sauce, couscous or even rice. I also sometimes serve it with merguez sausages.

Made with a hint of large family madness, a pinch of dinner parties and a scoop of easy and quick recipes, this blog is a well-round concoction (!!) of tried and tested food we love.

The gang is made off a mum, a dad, 4 girls (aged 17, 15, 6 & 6) and 1 dog. That’s a lot of people to please when it comes to dinner time.

The 2 main characters in the story are: Maud (the human mum) & Momo (the Thermomix), we were both born in France, both have a passion for cooking, simple, tasty food – cooking & baking makes us happy!

Coming soon:
