Walmart Cooking Challenge: Roasted Red Pepper + Artichoke Shakshuka 

This post was developed in sponsored partnership with Walmart & World Food Championships

We’ve all been feeling like a master chef in our kitchen these days (myself included) and now you can win some money for creating your own dish! Do you have the culinary skills to whip up a delicious dish worthy of a $250 Walmart gift card? If so, keep reading! 

I was challenged by Walmart to create my own recipe using pantry staples and of course I made one of my favorite dishes; Shakshuka! Think of Shakshuka as baked eggs in tomato sauce and it is very delicious, flavorful and super easy to make! What I love most about Shakshuka is that it is a very versatile dish, and you can add in whatever you have in your fridge or pantry. For my Shakshuka dish, I added canned artichokes and roasted red peppers and threw them in with tomato sauce and eggs! You can also top your Shakshuka with whatever you’re in the mood for, whether it is avocado, basil, cilantro or feta – anything pairs perfectly with this healthy dish!
