White Bean Shakshuka

Looking for a new modern take on an old favourite? Make sure to try out this White Bean Shakshuka. It’s filled with nutrient rich Great Northern Beans grown locally here in Canada. It’s a 30-minute meal that works for both brunch and dinner! We love it served with a fresh baguette for a tasty and satiating dish that can be prepped ahead of time.
