Camping Cooking in the Outdoors – Shakshuka Recipe
Serves 3-5 | Prep time: 10 minutes | Cooking time: 30 minutes
Shakshuka is a traditional Israeli breakfast dish made by cooking eggs in a spicy tomato-based sauce. This shakshuka recipe’s perfect for camping – it’s full of flavour, easy to make and cooks in one pot. If you haven’t had shakshuka before, you’re in for a real treat. We love shakshuka for breakfast, but it’d be an awesome stew as lunch or dinner too.
In this video we demo how to make a shakshuka in a Jetboil on Rubens, Firefly stove. The kitchen equipment we are using is the Trangia set ‘stormkök’. The full shakshuka recipe is below.
Gear you’ll need
Camping stove – we used a Jetboil and Robens Firefly Stove but any camping or backpacking stove with a capacity of 1L or more and the ability to adjust the temperature down to a simmer is fine.
Something to stir with – we used a wooden spoon
Something to eat from – we used an aluminium plate and paper bowl but you could eat straight from your camping Trangia ‘stormkök’ if you want
Knife & chopping board – to cut the veggies. Our tip – cut them at home and carry them in a ziplock bag so you don’t need to cart a knife around with you.
1 tbsp olive oil (or diced bacon directly from package)
2 small onions, chopped
2 cloves garlic, crushed or garlic powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp chilli flakes (optional for additional heat)
Pinch cayenne pepper (optional for additional heat)
1 can chopped tomatoes (Pomodori)
1 tomato, diced or cut into smaller for easier cooking
1/2 bell pepper (aka red pepper, capsicum), chopped (optional)
3 free-range eggs
Bread to serve
What to do
We like to prep our ingredients for this shakshuka before we go camping – it cuts down on rubbish and prevents you having to carry as much. Whether this is right for you is down to personal preference and depends on how soon you’d be using the ingredients, how much gear you’re happy to carry, the weather and whether you’ve got access to a bin.
So there you have it, enjoy! What’s your go-to camping meals recipe?
