Carrington Farms Shakshuka-inspired Italian Eggs

This is the perfect whip up recipe with a fancy name that will make your guest think you slaved in the kitchen for hours.  Shakshouka is a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, and onions, often spiced with cumin traditionally. The recipe I’m sharing today is a fun Italian spin adding easy to grow fresh red onion and basil from your home garden will make it even more of a treat. I’m a huge fan of coconut cooking oil because it is a great alternatiive to traditional oils such has vegetable, olive, canola, and corn oil. The coconut oil I’m using in this recipe that has medium chain triglycerides (MTC) which is efficiently utilized by the body for energy production and helps aid in calorie burning.  If you use the Carrington’s  coconut oil in the recipe it is all-natural, gluten-free, hexane-free, NON-GMO, free of hydrogenated and trans fats and comes in a BPA free bottle.

(From the chef: I use the oil this way in this recipe because it helps cook the top faster without compromising the bottom, not to mention a great way of getting those healthy fats in without losing them to the pan.)
