with chickpeas / cauliflower / naan
Taking the flavors of Indian cuisine as inspiration, this is a creative twist on traditional Shakshuka that involves eggs being poached in a rich tomato sauce. Reviewers loved the depth of flavor that came from the optional step of toasting spices when this dish was last featured in 2019.

Heat up a saute pan that you have a lid for over medium-high heat. Add cooking oil to pan; once oil is heated, add ginger, garlic, and onions. Saute until softened, ~3 minutes.
Add in diced tomatoes, cauliflower, and beans with spice mix and some salt. Mix everything together and saute for ~5 minutes. Taste and season with more salt or additional spices.
Crack eggs directly into tomatoes. Lower heat to medium, cover, and cook for ~5 minutes or until eggs are done to your liking.
Divide filling and eggs between serving bowls. Top with a dollop of yogurt, cilantro, and a squeeze of lime. Enjoy with naan.
Sauce was to die for, and the chicken was super moist. I used heavy whipping cream instead of yogurt in the sauce. Next time #DoubleTheSauce1 Helpful
Slightly overcooked the chicken. Should have used my airfrier instead because it ALWAYS turns out well when I do that. The salsa was a little bland - probably should have gone a little heavier on the salt/spice. Had potential for sure. Might make it again with those adjustments.0 Helpful
We enjoyed this. I made the original recipe and added roasted califlower with cumin seeds. Marinated chicken in advance. Came together quickly at dinner time. Everyone loved it.0 Helpful
Eggs always take 3x longer for me. But I know that about shashuka now!0 Helpful
OMG. The sauce! So delicious. Naan dipped in the sauce= YUM!!0 Helpful
Delicious, super easy once the marinade was on. Keep naan in the freezer for an easy pantry meal.0 Helpful
I loved the chicken but the salsa was weirdly bitter.0 Helpful
