Creole Tomato Shakshuka

Posted in: Food, Recipe, Vegetarian

Hey Young Chefs!

I had an amazing cooking demo at the 31st Creole Tomato Festival yesterday. The crowd was fantastic and very engaging. I made Creole Tomato Shakshuka. Shakshuka is a popular Israeli tomato and egg dish. It is originally from Tunisia in North Africa. When North African Jews immigrated to Israel, they brought this staple dish with them. I absolutely love this dish and could eat it for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!
