Shakshuka is a really popular recipe right now, although I had never heard of it until recently. But the pictures all looked so striking and delicious and eggs poached in tomato sauce sounded like a fabulous idea! I’ve been including a lot more eggs in my diet lately and also more vegetarian meals. This has become one of my favorite dishes for lunch.
However, what I make isn’t quite shakshuka. Let’s call it shakshukish. I made real shakshuka once and enjoyed it, but I found myself wishing for tomato sauce flavored more like marinara sauce. So then I made it that way, with parmesan cheese on top instead of feta. But then I missed the feta. So now it’s marinara sauce for me…with feta!
