Is Shakshuka the same as eggs in purgatory?

Not quite. Shakshuka is North African and Arab while eggs in Purgatory are the Italian cousin. Both recipes feature a flavorful slow-cooked  tomato sauce and softly cooked eggs (or in this case, tofu eggs) but the seasonings are different. Shakshuka uses turmeric, cumin and coriander to scent the tomato stew. The Italian version is all about that good olive oil and that garlic, along with a little basil and red-pepper flakes.
