We celebrated World Egg Day by sharing egg recipes from around the world. While researching different international egg recipes, we learned about a spicy egg dish from Africa and the Middle East called Shakshouka. Ever since then, we have been wanting to try making our own version.

Sometimes ethnic cuisine can seem hard to master, with unfamiliar ingredients and new flavors. So, we developed this recipe to be as easy as possible, with simple ingredients and easy preparation. We promise, even if this dish is hard to pronounce, it is easy to whip up!
