Nightshade Free Shakshuka!


This is one of those colorful, warm and so flavorful meals that you just can’t live without! Every time a beautiful skillet of simmering tomato & eggs popped up on my feed I just drooled. Tomatoes are a no go for me, so I would need no-mato marinara sauce to make this happen. For some reason I hadn’t made any in a while, but then something awesome happened. I made AIP pizza & had lots of extra pumpkin marinara to spare!

I also had eggs, onions, carrots, kale & chimichurri… it was meant to be!

I cut my carrots in long thin strips to mimic the bell peppers normally used for this dish & used the chimichurri to recreate the salty tangy garnish of feta & parsley. I’ll tell ya… it was delicious!

Warm, hearty, spiced & filling. Shakshuka for everyone
