Easy Shakshuka with Feta
Originating from the Ottoman Empire Shakshouka or Shakshuka is an easy baked egg recipe filled with flavor. The word is Arabic for “a mixture”, which is quite fitting for this dish. Although this version of the Shakshuka recipe is more traditional, there are TONS of ways to make this dish. Find a few other Shakshouka recipe ideas here!
My version of Shakshuka uses tomatoes, garlic, cumin, coriander and feta cheese. The dish itself is a great healthy option for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I like to add pita bread alongside mine to mop up all the delicious sauce though! Use this traditional Shakshuka recipe as a starting point, then try your own creative twist on the classic.
