Za'atar Gives Your Brunch a Swift Kick in the Tomatoes

Posted: Updated:

The last days of summer are churning out some great tomatoes, and this recipe makes use of those both ripe and overripe.

Shakshuka is a beautifully fragrant and spicy down-home Middle Eastern tomato stew. Along with garlic, peppers, onions, and a good amount of heat this egg dish will turn your brunch on it's head.

So similar to your traditional Italian Sunday sauce, the difference is in the spices: za'atar, a blend of spices with sesame seeds and sumac, sets this dish apart.

It's the hangover helper of your ancestors.

FudeHouse teamed up with cool company Quinciple to help source the ingredients. Our friends at Quinciple are master curators, connecting you with artisanal producers and bringing the best of what's in season to your door. They know their stuff.
