A few years ago, I was lucky enough to visit Israel for the first time. This meaningful experience brought me closer to my Judaism and gave me a newfound love for Israel. I loved the places we traveled to, the locals we met, and the food we ate throughout the trip. This week, I want to celebrate Israel and everything it has to offer by exploring the recipe of a dish commonly found in Israel.
So, this week we are making shakshuka! Shakshuka is a staple breakfast dish found in Israel and throughout the Middle East. When I was in Israel, I had shakshuka all the time. Almost every morning, I would start my day with a serving of shakshuka. Now, it is one of my all-time favorite breakfast dishes. To make shakshuka, you need a large pan or skillet to make the sauce. Then, you can use the back of a spoon to make some holes in the sauce where the eggs will be cooked. You can eat shakshuka as is or serve with bread such as pita bread, challah, or even garlic bread. I hope you enjoy you shakshuka!
