I'd expect a Green Shakshuka to be similar to a traditional shakshouka, with a stewed/puréed green peppers, veggies, or chili base. Plentyfull's take however ended up being more akin to a lentil stew than anything shakshouka-y. First off, eggs aren't cooked in a nice hole-in-a-pan with it's whites absorbing some of the flavours of the stew; second, nothing green in there except lentils and chard (or was it kale); and really, it was more soupy than anything. Like I said, not a bad dish at all — it's quite reminiscent of a daal really, just wetter — but NOT in any way a shakshouka.
