What is Shakshuka?:

Shakshuka is a classic North African and Middle Eastern meal of eggs stewed in a generously-spiced sauce made from tomatoes, red peppers, and often harissa paste (which is a combination of roasted red peppers, garlic, caraway and coriander seeds, cumin, and herbs).

It is eaten any time of the day – breakfast, lunch, or dinner!
