Shakshuka is a classic Middle Eastern breakfast dish that consists of poaching eggs in a smoky, spicy tomato based sauce. If you’re not familiar, get ready to add a new recipe to your rotation. Not only is it fun to say… shack-shoe-kah …but it’s a totally customizable comfort food dish. In this recipe, we added roasted red pepper hummus for a creamy twist.
While we’re always partial to protein based breakfasts, we especially love those made in one pan! The add of hummus in this sauce provides a nice heartiness and the fresh parsley brings a bright note to round out the tomato sauce. This is the perfect meal to make for a group, especially when served with pita or toasted challah bread for dunking and dipping.
For a light and tasty twist, we opted to use chickpeas as the base for this salad, but if you’re craving a more classic chicken salad recipe, you can easily swap or add shredded chicken. Also instead of serving on toasted bread, we recommend using crisp butter lettuce cups, which can even be rolled up and enjoyed on the go as a wrap!
