Shakshuka with Tofu “Feta”
This 1-dish shakshuka recipe is a traditional North African meal that’s incredibly easy to make, packed with flavor, and topped with tofu “feta” for extra yum!
You know how I mentioned that during our trial run of the 21 Day Vegetarian Reset my disdain for tomatoes transformed into some serious tomato cravings? Well this shakshuka recipe was a remedy (and a seriously tasty one at that). Because is there anything better than a 1-dish, 30 minute dinner that consists largely of runny eggs, flavorful tomato/veggie sauce, and a healthy heap of warm pita bread for dipping? Nope, no there’s not.
