Creamy Shakshuka Pasta Sauce

A very tasty spice blend! I used the Shakshuka recipe as a pasta sauce, added a bit of dairy to make it creamy. So good 😋

What a great idea, Connie!
(So great, in fact, I did the same thing. And it was SO good )
Thanks for sharing this review and how you are using the Shakshuka spice blend. It's not just for Shakshuka!

Perfect balance of flavors and spice levels!

My girl, Lex, has made a spice blend that we literally put on everything! Perfect balance of flavors and spice levels! 100% Recommended!

Thanks Fatima! I love that Hatim and the kids call Gerry 'Mr. Shakshuka' too.
Of course, we maybe should mention that you guys always get a LARGE pack of the Spicy Shakshuka too ️️️

Delicious

Made Shakshuka a breeze! I’d been wanting to try it for months but was intimidated by getting the spice blend wrong; Lex’s Pantry solved that issue. It was actually pretty darn easy to make and will be part of my breakfast menu, going forward. I might even have learned how to pronounce it, today, at the market. Delicious blend, highly recommend.

Thanks Andrea! I'm so glad it made things tasty and 'pretty darn easy'. Did you try using Lex's recipe for Shakshuka - https://fromlexspantry.com/blogs/recipes/shakshuka, use your own or wing it?

Take a walk on the wild side....

This one I opened the packet and stopped. I was a bit worried. There is a darker … probably the fennel and coriander with maybe a slightly smoked paprika… but it isn’t a smoked smell exactly…almost a dry fermented something. It does remind me of some meats I have eaten in some odd parts of the world but it is hard for me to put a finger on it and no I have never been to North Africa where this spice has its origins. This is one of those ones where you are going to like this or maybe not. I made my ground beef with this and I liked it. I was trying out the Gyro and Kabob spices at the same time. This was THE most interesting because it was different for me. I made it with a smaller amount of beef compared to the others (I didn’t think I’d like it) and I regret that. Definitely feeling it goes with beef or pork. Not so sure about this with chicken... can't picture veggies.

Why 5/5? I desperately need something new to shake up my taste buds. Right now, given the spices I have... if I was making some kind of beef/lamb/port thing, I'd grab this again.

Howard, thank you for bravely taking a walk on the wild side with our Shakshuka spice blend! We appreciate your adventurous spirit and willingness to try something new.

It's fascinating to hear your thoughts on the aroma and flavour profile of the spice blend. We love using it in everything from traditional Shakshuka to Merguez sausages made with ground lamb. Ground beef and turkey are also fantastic options—Gerry's been using it exclusively in our turkey burgers lately. He calles them 'Turkshuka burgers'.

Your feedback about its compatibility with beef or pork is spot on, and we agree that it adds a delicious twist to dishes in need of a flavor shake-up.

We're delighted to have been able to provide you with something new to tantalize your taste buds, and we're honoured that you would reach for our Shakshuka spice blend again when creating your next flavour masterpiece.

Thanks again for sharing your culinary adventure with us.

Spice on, my friend,
Lex from From Lex's Pantry

  • Spice Storage

    Spices, rubs and spice blends, should be stored in a dry, cool, dark place and used quickly to get the most flavour from them.

    Ground spices typically lose their freshness and are often past their peak in 6 months.
