CHANCES ARE IF YOU’VE BEEN TO BRUNCH RECENTLY YOU HAVE SEEN SHAKSHUKA ON THE MENU.

Although the name makes it sound intimidating, it is truly one of the easiest things to whip up at home! All you really need is a can of great tomato sauce and a couple of eggs to elevate your basic scrambled eggs. Below is how I typically make mine:

WHAT TO GRAB:

-1 tsp oil (avocado, olive or even ghee would work well)

-1 tsp chopped garlic

-1/2 cup jarred marinara sauce (big fan of 365 brand by Whole Foods: it’s cheap and great ingredients)

-2 organic pasture-raised eggs

-salt/pepper to taste

-chopped fresh dill

OPTIONAL ADDTIONS:

I add vegetables to just about anything I can, so it is no different here. This recipe would be great if you cooked some vegetables into the tomato sauce before you cracked the eggs. Some things I’ve done in the past that worked well:

-Zucchini

-Mushrooms

-Onions

-Carrots (sliced thinly)

-Cauliflower

Also, although I used dill here, you can easily make this with any herbs you have! Parsley would make it delish.

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Start by adding the olive oil and garlic to a pan. Cook on medium heat for few mins, just to brown the garlic

  2. Add in marinara sauce and stir with the garlic/oil mixture

  3. Crack in 2 eggs and cover with a lid. Cook covered on medium to medium-high heat for ~5 minutes (depending on how cooked you want the eggs)

  4. Top with salt, pepper & fresh dill

  5. ENJOY
