SHAKSHUKA RECIPE

WHAT IS SHAKSHUKA?

Shakshuka is a tasty dish that consists of a combination of eggs, tomatoes, and various spices, making it a nutritious and fulfilling option for any meal of the day. This vegetarian dish is simple to prepare and uses basic ingredients, which is why it has become so popular. It is now a favorite dish for many families around the world. The result may look fancy, but it’s one of the easiest egg recipes you can make.

Origins of SHAKSHUKA:

Shakshuka is a popular dish that originated in North Africa. Tunisia is often credited as its place of origin. The dish has traveled through the Mediterranean, the Middle East, and beyond. The name “shakshuka” is believed to be derived from the Arabic word “shak,” which means mixture. The dish truly lives up to its name, blending various ingredients into a harmonious and flavorful union.

SHAKSHUKA INGREDIENTS:

SHAKSHUKA INGREDIENTS

Vegetables: The shakshuka base is a mix of sauteed onion, bell pepper, and garlic, along with tomatoes (I use a can of whole peeled tomatoes).
Spices: The simple combination of paprika, cumin, and chili powder imparts incredible flavor. 
Eggs: The eggs gently poach in the spiced tomato mixture. You can cook the eggs to your desired yolk texture. While runny consistency is preferred by most, I like my yolks a bit firmer for this recipe.
Fresh Herbs: A sprinkle of freshly chopped parsley adds a burst of color and flavor to the dish.

How to Make SHAKSHUKA

Step 1: Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once hot, add the onion and sauté for 3 minutes.

Place one egg in each well, and repeat the process with the remaining five eggs. Cover the mixture and cook until the egg whites are set, but the yolks are still runny. This should take around 8 to 10 minutes, depending on the heat of your burner. If you prefer a more firm egg yolk, cook for a little longer, about 10 to 12 minutes.
