Why You Should Be Eating Shakshuka for Passover

An easy and delicious dish to enjoy during the no-bread holiday.

We all love matzah with cream cheese, matzah pizza or matzah topped with avocado and a runny egg. But you know what is also kosher-for-Passover? Shakshuka.

You should be eating shakshuka because 1) it’s easy 2) you probably already have all the ingredients in your pantry and 3) it’s delicious, matzah-free fun. Shakshuka also lends itself perfectly to alterations.

I like adding some feta or goat cheese on top along with a ton of fresh herbs. Don’t have goat cheese or feta? Add shredded mozzarella instead. You could also add mushrooms, eggplant or even little meatballs. Like it spicy? Add some small chilies, fresh jalapeno or red pepper flakes to your spice mixture. Or top your shakshuka with a healthy dollop of labneh or zhug. And then scoop it up with matzah, if that’s your thing.

Here’s some of my favorite ways to enjoy shakshuka, including an easy-to-follow video showing just how to do it!
