ShakshukaShakshuka is a Middle Eastern dish that is quick and easy to make, and can be served for any meal. Our favorite occasion is always brunch with friends, though, because it’s such a crowd pleaser. This versatile recipe is traditionally seasoned with cumin and paprika, but you can use just about any spice blend that suits your fancy. For this one I used our El Greco Seasoning, with Mediterranean herbs and a hint of sumac. To top it off, I added chopped spinach and feta cheese to the sauce.
