Shakshuka is a classic Middle Eastern breakfast dish that consists of poaching eggs in a smoky, spicy tomato based sauce. If you’re not familiar, get ready to add a new recipe to your rotation. Not only is it fun to say… shack-shoe-kah …but it’s a totally customizable comfort food dish. In this recipe, we added roasted red pepper hummus for a creamy twist.

While we’re always partial to protein based breakfasts, we especially love those made in one pan! The add of hummus in this sauce provides a nice heartiness and the fresh parsley brings a bright note to round out the tomato sauce. This is the perfect meal to make for a group, especially when served with pita or toasted challah bread for dunking and dipping.
