What Is Shakshuka?
Shakshuka (also spelled Shakshouka) is believed to have a Tunisian origin. Shakshuka means “a mixture” or “shaken” in Tunisian dialect. Shakshuka is a staple of Tunisian, Libyan, Algerian, and Moroccan cuisines traditionally served up in a cast iron pan with bread to mop up the sauce. So go ahead and grab that gluten-free bread or Ezekial bread and enjoy!

- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 3 leeks sliced
- 2 cloves garlic minced
