Shakshuka recipe

Serves 4 to 6


  • 1 tbsp Paleo cooking fat;
  • 1/2 onion, chopped;
  • 1 clove garlic, minced;
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and chopped;
  • 4 cups tomatoes, diced;
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste;
  • 1 tsp chilli powder;
  • 1 tsp paprika;
  • A pinch cayenne pepper;
  • Sea salt and freshly cracked black pepper to taste;
  • 5 or 6 large eggs;
  • 1/2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped;


  1. Note: For this recipe, it’s most desirable to use a cast-iron skillet; however, if you don’t have one, a regular large skillet will also do.
  2. Place a large skillet over a medium heat and add the cooking fat to allow it to melt and grease the surface of the pan. Add the onions and sauté for two minutes. Mix in the garlic and continue to cook until the onions become tender and slightly golden in colour.
  3. Add the chopped bell pepper to the skillet and mix well. Sauté for at least 5 minutes, just until the pepper is tender.
  4. Once the peppers have cooked, add the chopped tomatoes and tomato paste to the skillet, followed by the chilli powder, paprika and cayenne pepper. Give the mixture a taste and add any additional spices, as well as the salt and pepper to your liking. Allow the mixture to simmer. At this point, you may have to lower the heat to prevent the mixture from boiling.
  5. Now crack the eggs into the skillet on top of the tomato mixture. Make sure they are spaced evenly. I placed one in the middle and then surrounded it with the rest of the eggs. Cover the skillet and cook for anywhere between 10 to 15 minutes. You will know when the dish is ready as the eggs will be white and no clear liquids will run.
  6. Once the eggs have cooked through, garnish with the fresh parsley and serve it up.

Chocolate Nut Granola

Chocolate Nut Granola

Chocolate nut granola Recipe

Serves 4


  • 1 cup walnuts;
  • 1 cup almonds;
  • pinch of salt;
  • 1/4 cup raw honey;
  • 3 tbsp butter or clarified butter;
  • 3 tbsp cocoa powder;
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract;
  • 1/2 cup shredded coconut;
  • 2 oz dark chocolate;
Granola preparation


  1. Preheat your oven to 200 F.
  2. Using a food processor, coarsely chop the walnuts and almonds. Nothing too fine, as you will have to put them through the food processor again. Leave the nuts in the processor and set aside for later use.
  3. In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the butter with the honey and whisk occasionally. Once combined, add the cocoa powder, vanilla and a pinch of salt. Whisk together.
  4. Pour the chocolate mixture into the nuts in the food processor. Pulse briefly, just until the chocolate is consistently mixed in. Add the coconut and pulse one more time.
  5. Spread the mixture out over a baking sheet. Bake for 4 hours in the preheated oven.
  6. Once the granola has finished baking, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool completely. Break the granola apart into small chunks. Also break apart the 2 oz chocolate and mix in with the granola.
