Mediterranean Vegetable Shakshuka

Sunny-side-up egg yolks are simmered in a tomato and vegetable sauce, infused with a savoury Middle Eastern spice blend of smoked paprika, cumin, pepper, cayenne, turmeric & caraway. Grab a large spoon, a hunk of bread (to soak up all the savory sauce) and dig into this rustic, comfort meal.
