Shakshuka Brunch

One of my favorite brunch recipes is Shakshuka! It’s a middle eastern dish and is full of flavor. The best part is you don’t have to be very talented in the kitchen to impress someone with this dish.

Shakshuka Prepped Vegetables

It is made with very minimal ingredients and packed with flavor. The whole recipe takes less than 30 minutes when you’re on a pinch for time.

I made a brunch with this dish and my Strawberry Shortcake Donuts. With some mimosas, this is a quick brunch that is perfect for a weekend morning.


Making this dish made quarantine feel a little less bleak. It felt like we were eating quality restaurant breakfast.

I would also recommend serving this dish with some warm Naan bread. All you do is put the oven to 350 and place the naan directly on the rack for about 5 minutes until it gets a little crispy and warm.
