Prep
30 minutes
Total
35 minutes

The combination of meaty, spicy Nduja, creamy butter beans, onions, garlic and leafy spinach, all mixed with flavour bursting red pepper and tomato sauces was just gorgeous. Topped with poached eggs cooked until the egg whites are just set but yolks still runny, this shakshuka is one you just have to try!! 


Such a satisfying, simple, one pan meal that always hits the spot for brekkie, brunch or lunch…  I would very happily eat this for dinner too!!


Ndjua (pronounced IN-DU-JAH) a spicy, spreadable pork from Italy made with pork fat, herbs and spices and spicy Calabrian peppers.  It is incredible on pizza, in pasta, spread onto bread or with cheese.  It is readily available in supermarkets as a paste in a jar or even fresh... try it and you’ll be hooked.
