  1. Heat up a skillet or saute pan that you have a lid for over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan and then onions, jalapenos and eggplants with some salt. Saute for ~6 minutes, until softened. Add garlic and saute for 1 minute more.
  2. Add in diced tomatoes (including liquid) with spice mix. Saute for ~4 minutes to let flavors come together
  3. Crack eggs directly into tomatoes. Lower heat to medium, cover, and cook for ~5 minutes, or until eggs are done to your liking.
  4. While eggs cook, arrange Mediterranean platter with baby carrots, peppers, cucumbers and baba ganoush.
  5. Serve shakshuka with basil on top (since it can be a bit of a runny dish, it's best enjoyed in a bowl). Enjoy Mediterranean platter on the side and dip veggies in baba ganoush.
