Meeting ID: 957 7379 9303

Ingredients and supplies:

For Shakshuka (this recipe calls for 6 eggs, which is a good amount for 3-4 people. Feel free to adjust quantities depending on how many you are cooking for):

  • Olive oil
  • 1 large yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 bell peppers, chopped (any color you have)
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled, chopped
  • 1 tsp sweet paprika
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • OPTIONAL: If you want to make green shakshuka, 2 cups of spinach
  • Pinch red pepper flakes or fresh jalapeno pepper (optional – depending on how much you like spice, you can add more or less, and any hot pepper will do!)
  • Salt and pepper
  • 6 medium-large tomatoes, chopped (You can replace fresh tomatoes with canned stewed or chopped tomatoes – 40-50 oz., depending on the size of the can)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 6 large eggs
  • Optional toppings: fresh parsley, cilantro, mint, scallions, chives, feta cheese
  • Cutting board and knife
  • Frying pan or large shallow pan, ideally with a cover, but not necessary
  • Wooden spoon or other mixing spoon

For Pita (Makes 18 pitas. Pita freezes well, so plan to make the full recipe! If you don’t want to make pita, you can also buy a good crusty bread, or make your own):

  • 3 1/4 cups flour (all purpose)
  • 2 1/4 tsp active dry yeast
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 egg
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1/2 tbsp salt
  • Stand mixer or hand mixer with dough hook (a regular beater for the mixer is also fine. If you don’t have a mixer, this can also be done by hand – it will just take a bit more work! If you plan to make the pita by hand, be sure to have a mixing bowl and spoon available.)
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Non-stick frying pan
  • Large bowl
  • Plastic wrap
  • Clean dish towel (optional)
  • Large clean work surface (where you can leave the pitas to rise), or 2-3 large baking sheets to set them on
  • Tongs or fork to flip pita

For Israeli Salad (Recipe is for 4-6 people. Adjust quantities as necessary. If there are any ingredients you don’t like, you can leave them off.);

  • 3-4 mini-Persian cucumbers (or 1 large cucumbers)
  • 1 bell pepper (any color, ideally not green)
  • 2-3 medium tomatoes
  • 1 small onion (red or white, depending on your preference) or 2 scallions
  • 1 avocado (optional)
  • 1 lemon (or lemon juice)
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cutting board
  • Knife
  • Salad bowl
  • Salad spoon/servers
