I love the amount of rain LA has been getting lately and I also love enjoying extra cozy meals when it gets all chilly and rainy so that’s why we have a big batch of this Shakshuka with White Beans and Spinach for you all today! This perfectly cozy and comforting dish is delightfully stewy and packed with tons of bright flavors. The white beans add a layer of creamy goodness to the dish, which go great with the combination of runny eggs against acidic tomato-y sauce. YUM.
While I love making this dish for brunch during the weekend, it makes such a delicious, quick and easy weeknight dinner. Whenever you do decide to whip this up, be sure to enjoy it with a healthy stack of grilled pita or a big chunk of thick and crusty baguette. Yum!! xx, Jenny
