When I talk about my new favorite dish, Shakshuka, people usually give me a strange look…like I’ve sneezed, or something. That look on their faces makes me excited because it means they have no idea what Shakshuka is and I immediately make it my job to teach them. So, if you have never heard of Shakshuka, I am thrilled to teach you about it. Recently Shakshuka has become one of my favorite dishes that is a simple while incredibly flavorful, go-to meal that works for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. At my house we make sure to always to have the ingredients for shakshuka on hand, and it never fails as a quick and delicious meal enjoyed by everyone.
Shakshuka is a North African dish that is now made throughout the Middle East, that is especially popular in Israel, where it is often eaten for breakfast. It consists of eggs poached in a spiced tomato sauce that’s topped with salty cubes of feta, loads of chopped cilantro, and sprinkled with a generous pinch of salt and pepper. When spooned into a warm pocket of pita bread, loaded with the luscious tomato sauce, soft eggs, salty feta, and cilantro, it makes for a delicious bite.
