Recipe: Shakshuka: The Best Breakfast Ever!


Shakshuka is primarily a North African dish but it has become a favorite throughout the Arab World.  Shakshuka is top of the list of my favorite egg dishes. 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. Quick, Easy, Healthy and Delicious: try it once, and it will become your new favorite!
