Shakshuka is an easy, healthy breakfast (or any time of day) recipe from North Africa and other Middle Eastern countries. It’s a simple combination of simmering tomatoes, onions, garlic, spices and gently pouched eggs. It’s nourishing, filling and one recipe I guarantee you’ll make time and again. It’s made from simple, healthy ingredients and is vegetarian.
Shakshuka literally means “a mixture” and the traditional version uses tomatoes, onions and spices as the base with eggs poached on top.
Shakshuka spices may vary, but you’ll commonly find paprika, cumin and chili powder, along with fresh garlic. I’d consider it flavorful spicy, not hot spicy. Though you can always add cayenne pepper if you’d like to heat it up.
