Sweet Potato Shakshuka

Hello #LoyalRoyals We’re not the only ones who’ve latched onto shakshuka (pron. shuck-shookah), the substantial all-day breakfast dish, popular across North Africa and the Middle East. It’s the star on many a restaurant menu, in various incarnations, since it ticks a host of dietary boxes. Besides that, it’s forgiving and easy to make using ingredients you probably have […]
