Shakshuka with Feta

in Healthy Breakfast, Recipes

This was my first attempt at shakshuka, and I’m wondering why I didn’t do it sooner! Its a great balance of sweet and savory, and such a great brunch idea. A very easy way to feed a crowd and is amazing served with fresh bread to sop up all those juices. Fresh pita bread would also be amazing too.

Traditional shakshuka doesn’t appear to have feta added to it, but I love it, so…in it went! Soft goat cheese would be amazing too. If you want it to be completely dairy-free, you could also leave it out.

You’ll have to use an oven safe skillet for this dish (I used cast iron). But I love how its made and served in the same dish, and its so pretty when its done!
