I came to love shakshuka, the popular breakfast dish of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce, a little later in life. This was probably the result of being a tomato hating kid but thank goodness I grew out of it.
Now I quite enjoy the complex flavors of tomatoes, vegetables and spices melding together in a pan. And, of course, the ultimate reward is the tender egg cooked in the sauce. I use pita bread, or naan, to scoop up the sauce and runny yolk and it's such a great weekend breakfast or brunch.
I say weekend because my weekday mornings are a fast moving, cereal in a bowl, situation. But wait - ready made Shakshuka Simmer sauce in a pouch? Yes, please. I was introduced to the Wild Garden line of Simmer Sauces, Marinades and Pilafs and there was my beloved shakshuka, already made and just waiting for me to add the eggs.
Wild Garden's sauce is a blend of tomatoes, onions, red peppers, garlic and spices like cumin and red chili. In other words, all the ingredients I'd use myself to create shakshuka sauce. And while it's best known as an vegetarian egg dish, you can also use this to simmer fish or shrimp. I love the versatility of having these packets around. Enjoy!
