How to make Shakshuka

Ever tried Shakshuka?!

On Saturday’s it’s generally our takeout night for the family, so my mother has to make something for a lunchtime one-off dish. Therefore yesterday, I recommended we try and make this delicious *Shakshuka* dish from the new recipe book I purchased a month ago. The last time I had a Shakshuka was at the Daisy Green Collection, so this was not new to me but it was to the family.

However, this is definitely on top of my favourite egg dishes.

Boy! This turned out so good as you can see for yourself! Hopefully, the recipe provided below will give you the inspiration to try out for yourself. The best thing about this dish, you can have it for either breakfast, lunch or dinner.

What’s a Shakshuka?

This middle eastern dish has become a huge popularity since it’s a simple dish which features your everyday ingredients. While there are many variations to make this traditional recipe, generally it contains basic eggs poached in a spiced tomato and green pepper stew with onions and garlic.

    This looks soooo good!! I’m not a fan of the flavor/texture of soy milk. Did you by chance test with dairy milk, or have thoughts on subbing it? Thanks!!
