Shakshuka


This is a classic Israeli dish made with basic ingredients but the finished product is very impressive. A great recipe which works well for brunch or dinner.

The basic recipe needs onions, tomatoes, garlic, eggs, fresh herbs & seasonings. Based on the ingredients you have on hand, you can play around with the other optional stuff.

I like to add sundried tomatoes for added saltiness and omit the feta.

If you want an extra nutrition boost, add a handful of kale, spinach or rainbow chard.

You can enjoy this with some crusty bread, pita or just by itself.
