Mina Shakshuka Moroccan Tomato Sauce - large jar

26 oz - New York

Shakshuka - morning, noon & night
A meaty sauce without the meat.

Breakfast for some, lunch, or dinner for others, Shakshuka is a delicious dish that is easy to make. It's even easier when you use Cafe Mina’s version.

Shakshuka has a long history with many theories about when and where it originated. It's an everyday "one-pot dish" in a big swath of countries, from Tunisia and Morocco to eastward to Egypt, Israel, and Syria.

Variations with different spices abound, and the addition of lamb, potatoes, and artichokes is common. Cultural variations of tomato-based sauces span the globe, and this Moroccan tomato sauce is the spicier one!

Mina’s Shakshuka starts like a tomato sauce you would make at home, with chunks and bits of texture, giving not only flavor but also a great mouthfeel. The tomato is absolutely present along with the spices and an all-around heat. It's a heat that’s tingly, pleasantly hot (not spicy), and when you finish, there’s a wonderful aftertaste.

If you’re not careful, you’ll eat the whole dish before you know it. The combination of the egg whites, the yolk, and the tomato creates a mouthfeel of pleasure that is very rewarding, satisfying, and very homey.

This meaty dish has no meat; instead, your heart is filled with tomatoes and eggs. This dish is simple and plain, easy and quick, just like you want your vegetarian dishes to be!

Tried this as lunch w/poached eggs. Terrific! Also had w/pasta. Very, very good. You must try this sauce.

I served this sauce with a poached egg over a lightly fried corn tortilla. The next day, my husband had some of the leftover sauce over a piece of toast and enjoyed it. I would absolutely buy this again. Terrific flavor!
