Deliciously Simple Shakshuka

Breakfast or Dinner – Spice Up Your Plate With Shakshuka

I’m a big fan of breakfast for dinner, so this recipe was thoroughly enjoyed as a weeknight dinner. This dish originates from North Africa and is very popular in the Middle East as a meal enjoyed for breakfast. Regardless of when you decide to enjoy this meal, know that it will be quite a treat.

Lucky for you, this week’s review features a great recipe for Shakshuka. It’s quick and easy to make and bursting with flavor!

Mess In The Kitchen's Shakshuka

A Recipe That Anyone Can Make

When making a home cooked meal, I can guarantee you that you don’t want to be standing in the kitchen for hours and hours. You look for shortcuts and “easy recipes”. In the last 5 years of writing reviews, I can tell you that some of these “easy” recipes that you find online don’t always end up being satisfying. This recipe, however, is simple from start to finish and is loaded with beautiful flavor. There is minimal preparation required, which makes this perfect for any day of the week and any time of the day.

The directions by Mess In the Kitchen are very straight forward, which is greatly appreciated even for those who have minimal experience in the kitchen.

Simple and easy doesn’t have to equal bland and boring. That’s why I enjoyed this recipe so much.

This recipe is also naturally vegetarian and gluten-free as it mostly consists of spices, tomatoes, and herbs. Oh, and of course–eggs. If you have Celiac’s Disease, then I do always recommend making sure that any prepped sauces are certified Gluten-Free in case of any cross-contamination. Harissa paste is, in general, gluten-free, however if produced in a warehouse where non gluten-free food is prepared, then you always tend to worry about the possibility of cross-contamination. If you’re concerned about the harissa paste, check out the brand that I used, CAVA, found at Whole Foods.

What To Serve With Shakshuka

You can honestly serve this any way that you’d like. Enjoy it on its own, eat it with some bread, or really step it up and eat with a traditional Moroccan Bread. Since I have been gluten-free, I opted to toast some gluten-free bread for me and my husband. I think deliciously runny eggs just pair so nicely with a nice piece of toast. Don’t you?

If you intend on keeping this low carb, then do omit any breads, naturally.

Grey’s Grade: 5/5

If you’re looking for some savory breakfast ideas, or wanting to switch up your dinners, then I highly recommend following this recipe by Mess In The Kitchen. The instructions are very simple and the end result is incredibly delicious. There is just the right amount of spice without it being overkill, and the yolk of the runny eggs just balance it all out. No better way to start your day (or end it) than with a flavorful meal that really wakes up your taste buds.

I’ve eaten savory breakfasts like this before, but never really followed any recipes. Make this recipe and I guarantee you that it will turn out delicious each time.
