Shakshuka. If you’re saying, “Shak-shu-whaaaat?” I can assure you that you’re not alone. The broadest explanation is that shakshuka is a recipe consisting of eggs baked in a tomato sauce. Of course, like any other recipe, there are many variations. Mine is a fun fall-inspired version made in the pressure cooker.

About this fall-inspired Instant Pot Shakshuka:

This Instant Pot shakshuka is flecked with green peppers, onions, and chunks of sweet, flavorful butternut squash. The tomato sauce is flavored with garlic, chili powder, smoked paprika, red pepper flakes, and oregano. Fresh parsley is stirred in at the end to brighten up the flavors.

When the tomato sauce is cooked, you’ll crack in four eggs. I’m partnering with Nellie’s Free Range Eggs who have the perfect Certified Humane eggs for shakshuka. Nellie’s hens are raised in a free range environment, meaning they have room to roam, play, and peck in green grass. You can see the difference immediately when you crack open one of their eggs, and it translates over into fantastic flavor, too.

When the eggs are finished cooking, you’ll garnish it with pumpkin seeds, feta, and more fresh parsley. The flavors are cozy, comforting and so irresistible. Get some crusty, freshly baked bread to dip in the tomato sauce and egg yolk and you have the perfect breakfast, lunch or dinner!

Tip: The whites are cooked fully and the yolks are perfectly runny when you serve this immediately you’re done doing a quick release of the pressure. If you continue to let the eggs sit in the tomato sauce, they will continue to cook. If you like a more firm yolk, leave them in the sauce for 2-3 minutes (with the pressure cooker on warm) or until they achieve the firmness you desire.
