pinterest shakshuka recipe

Shakshuka is a naturally gluten free brunch dish of eggs poached in a wealthy and flippantly spiced tomato sauce and is a surprising meal to get pleasure from. A traditional one pan dreamy recipe, which I like serving with do-it-yourself gluten free flatbread (my 15 minute recipe for flatbread is a should strive!).

A North African and Center Eastrn staple dish, shakshuka is increasingly regularly discovered on cafe menus throughout the UK. It’s completely scrumptious and is a dish we like to make at residence, and surprisingly simple.

You’ll be able to end the dish off with varied toppings, akin to yoghurt, avocado and/or chorizo, and it’s sensible for a giant sharing brunch with household or mates.

That ultimate stage solely takes quarter-hour, so in case you prep forward it’s a very fast one to knock up.

What Ought to I Serve it with?

A number of gluten free bread for dipping and scooping is my private desire! We frequently make a batch of my simple gluten free flatbread to go together with this dish, or contemporary pao de queijo (Brazilian cheese bread).
