We love a big skillet of shakshuka. It’s loaded with flavor, protein and is so easy to make. Check out these recipes that will make for a delicious brunch served with a salad, baguette or pita.
Shakshuka – the Northwestern African Maghrebi classic – might be the ultimate brunch dish, amirite? Easy to make, one skillet, filled with protein, vegetables and basically anything else you think is delicious – it’s healthy, hearty, and even hangover proof. Here are some creative, delicious and yes, perhaps slightly untraditional takes on a family favorite.
Dig into this pan that is packed with veggies, chickpeas (aka pulses), and topped off with feta. See the recipe.
