Fast and Easy Shakshuka
Shakshuka is a dish that originated in North Africa, but its taste appeals across many cultures. An easy way to think of it is as a similar flavor profile to a pizza, but without the crust. Making shakshuka in the Instant Pot could not be easier, as it is ready to eat after just 5 minutes of cooking. This also makes a great “breakfast for dinner” dish.
