My Favorite Shakshuka Recipe

Hi there! This is currently one of my favorite recipes. The worst part about summer turning into fall is the lack of eggs my chikadees are laying :(. So now of course I am regretting not making this recipe a ton more this summer.

If you aren’t familiar with shakshuka, it is an israeli dish that can be made dozens of ways. Simply put, it is eggs poached in tomato sauce and vegetables. It is so healthy, so hearty, so amazing. It might actually be my favorite dish of all time. Tangent — If you want to know what other mediteranean cuisine you can eat in Israeli, you should check out My Fruit Filled Travels in Israel!
