Shakshuka Recipe

Shakshuka Recipe

Today I’ve made a Middle Eastern dish  Shakshuka. Shakshuka recipe is simple and true to Middle Eastern flavors.  Eggs poached in a perfectly spiced vegetarian stew of tomatoes and green peppers.

Instead if using a regular Olive Oil I’ve used Ladi Biosas Agrumato Lemon Olive Oil .

I’ve also used Salt Odyssey Sea Salt Paprika  to balance the sweetness of the tomatoes Shakshuka requires very little equipment to make; a well-seasoned cast iron skillet is all you need.

While there are many variations of shakshuka, a traditional shakshuka recipe is basically eggs poached in a spiced tomato and green pepper stew with onions and garlic.

But today’s shakshuka recipe is more of a traditional version, with the addition of fresh herbs like parsley and mint.
