The origin of Shakshuka might be in Turkey, Spain, or Tunisia. The Israeli version with a beautiful top of poached eggs became famous around the world. This flavorful tomato stew with vegetables has usually a bit of heat. Our Turkish Marash pepper flakes add more flavor than heat.
The Magic of Zaatar
Pouch  contains the versatile Zaatar blend. The key ingredient for this magic spice blend is a Mediterranean thyme, called zaatar.
Zaatar is more flavorful than the thyme from the common spice boards. Sumac adds a citrus note and sesame seeds a slight nutty crunch. Use it for a dip or marinade.
- Adapt the recipe to your liking: without eggs, with hot chilies, and/ or other vegetables, for instance, pumpkin, leek, sweet potatoes, or mushrooms.
- Instead of the dip, marinate 1 lb strips from chicken breast or sirloin beef in Shakshuka Spices , 2 tbsp oil, and salt to taste for 1-2 hours before frying.
