Shakshuka in a hurry
I know shakshuka doesn’t take long to cook, but if you’re in a hurry, you can use chunky pasta or marinara sauce with a bit of harissa sauce. It will give you most of everything you need for the sauce, and just let it cook down a few minutes to thicken. You’ll be able to skip the first five steps of the recipe and go straight to adding the spinach to wilt. You’ll have a similar tasting sauce even though it won’t be as good as my recipe. I’m not biased!
I like to serve my shakshuka in a bowl with the egg yolks as runny as possible and the egg whites completely set. You can garnish it with sliced scallions or parsley to add a bit of freshness. The best thing to serve shakshuka with is toasted pita bread or rustic homemade Italian bread. No matter what type of bread you use, you want something that’s going to soak up all of the delicious sauce. I know you’ll enjoy this as much as I do. Kali Orexi!
