Plant-Based Shakshuka with Shish Taouk Tofu and Garlic Bread

Shakshuka, a tomato and egg-based North African and Israeli dish, is a staple come the winter months in our home. Only, we make ours with marinated tofu instead of eggs and the results are spectacular.

Why we love it: the citrusy tang of our Shish Taouk Tofu is in perfect contrast to the sweet smokiness of this shakshua sauce. Pile both atop homemade garlic bread for utter amazingness.
