SHAKSHUKA WITH SPICY SAUSAGE
My favorite mediterranean restaurant in New York City was Meme, and they serve shakshuka and it is out of this world, its oh so flavorful, spicy and saucy. Its served with a tahini sauce that is also very good.
I recently have been seeing shakshuka all over social media, I think its because I have been wanting to make shakshuka since I can't get it from Meme anymore. So I of course made it at and the results were even better than at Meme. Adding spicy sausage really gives an extra dimension to it.
Not going to lie this might be one of my favorite recipes on the blog. Its easy, healthy, and comforting,

1 large onion, halved and thinly sliced
