Shakshuka is a classic North African and Middle Eastern dish and one that’s enjoyed for breakfast or any meal of the day. Traditionally, it’s made from very simple, healthy ingredients such as tomatoes, onions, eggs, and spices.
Be sure to use YOUR favorite marinara sauce or good quality crushed tomatoes, because that’s where this dish gets a lot of its flavor!
When shopping for store-bought sauce:
I like to make sure the marinara has no added sugar (tomatoes naturally contain sugar, but sugar doesn’t need to be on the ingredients list.)
A good marinara sauce should contain only a few simple ingredients such as tomatoes, garlic, and herbs.
🍅 Try this with Rachel’s Homemade Marinara Sauce.
➡️ Rachel’s Tips:
Since there are only a few simple ingredients used here, I really recommend using the absolute freshest, highest quality ingredients you can get your hands on…it makes all the difference.
Feta is Greece’s most famous cheese (and my favorite!) Many say it’s also the healthiest.
Usually made from sheep or goat milk (or a combo), Feta cheese is nutrient-rich. Feta is said to be easier to digest and less allergenic and inflammatory than cheeses made from cow’s milk, which makes it a good option.
