Recently, IKEA was nice enough to send me a little something. A beautiful plate and a recipe book full of IKEA recipes! As I was flipping through the pages, I saw a recipe for Shakshuka and ofcourse, knowing me, I was heart struck. Shakshuka is one of my all-time favorite breakfast recipes, and all for a good reason. If you’ve never tried it yourself, you need to ASAP.

It’s a combination of everything delicious you want in a breakfast: eggs, feta cheese, onions, garlic, tomatoes, and parsley. If your stomach is growling right now, you’re on the right track.
