EASY SHAKSHUKA SUNDAY!
Hello foodie friends,
Let's kick off this 2023 with one of my "NEW" favorite recipes for the weekends. This is my easy "SHAKSHUKA" recipe Now, what is Shakshuka? It is a North African and Middle Eastern meal that consists of poached eggs in a simmering tomato sauce with spices. It's easy, healthy and takes less than 30 minutes to make. The flavors of this dish are comforting and so perfect to enjoy with pita or crusty bread. Just dipping the bread on the tomato a sauce and enjoy the poached eggs, is so satisfying!
The ingredients are very simple with some pantry staples, eggs, and veggies like bell peppers and onions, plus the perfect blend of spices to elevate your breakfast. This blend of spices is what adds bold flavors to the crushed tomatoes: a delicious mix of cumin, smoked paprika, and chili powder.
Like it spicy simple add 1 tsp of your favorite spicy sauce or make more traditional with harissa sauce.
My favorite toppings are crumbled feta cheese, fresh cilantro and fresh parsley. Just delish!
