Shakshuka is an Israeli dish of poached eggs in tomato sauce.  Shakshuka means comfort food.  Just kidding.  It doesn’t.  I acutally have no idea what the word means, but it should.   

This easy one-pot meal is healthy, filling, and satisfying.  It also screams DIP SOMETHING IN ME!! Israeli’s serve it with a side of pita or challah.  Instead, I made my paleo tortillas.  They’re perfect for scooping all of that tomato-ey goodness.

½ yellow onion

1 can (28 oz) crushed tomatoes with juice

½ cup chicken borth

2 minced garlic cloves
