Shakshuka is a traditional Mediterranean dish consisting of spicy tomato and red pepper sauce, topped with eggs poached right in the sauce. It has a pleasant hint of cumin and garlic, which pair deliciously with soft, delicate eggs. Using high-quality olive oil is recommended in this dish when sauteeing the shallots and building the sauce’s intensity.
This simple, yet healthy meal can be enjoyed for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. The freshness of cilantro brightens up the whole meal at the end and brings all the richness of the sauce forward. Finish with a drizzle of robust extra virgin olive oil over the top of the shakshuka, if you like.
