Shakshuka is a vegetarian, gluten free, low-carb brunch (or dinner) recipe.
The first time I tasted Shakshuka it was prepared by an Israeli friend of mine. And I was hooked straight away!
He gave me za’atar herbs from Israel the next time I saw him, so I could make it myself. Luckily you can just buy za’atar herbs in the supermarket nowadays!
Although the dish is thought to have Tunisian origin, it’s also a staple of Libyan, Algerian, Moroccan, Egyptian and Israeli cuisine. My friend makes it for brunch, but if I’m not in the mood to cook a complicated dish, I sometimes make it for dinner.
My version is vegetarian, gluten free and dairy free. But you can add feta cheese right before serving or eat it with bread.
