This savory Simple Shakshuka is the perfect one-pan meal that is quick and easy and everyone will love!
Originating from parts of North Africa and the Middle East, Shakshuka relies heavily on delicious spices and herbs to create deep flavors that pair wonderfully with the acidic tomatoes and sweet peppers.
Spice It Up
Simple Shakshuka really is a blank-canvas meal. The spicy and rich tomato sauce is the perfect base to add hearty leafy greens, chopped nuts, sweet potatoes. There isn’t a wrong answer when it comes to ingredients so follow your heart (and your stomach) and get creative!
We love to serve our Simple Shakshuka with gluten-free bread, our favorite Jalepeño Cornbread, or fluffy quinoa.
