I wish that the circumstances of a global pandemic wasn’t the reason that most of us are enjoying home cooking, but here we are.
I’ve been focusing on basics because you can do a lot with a few simple ingredients. I had some fresh eggs, tomatoes, garlic and parsley lying around, so I decided to whip up a one-pan shakshuka.
What is shakshuka?
Traditional shakshuka (shakshouka) is a dish of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, olive oil, peppers, onion and garlic, and commonly spiced with cumin, paprika, cayenne pepper and nutmeg. The dish has existed in Mediterranean cultures for centuries.
Since my husband is a little picky, I altered this dish for his tastes, and I have to say it was pretty wonderful.
Poaching the eggs in a flavorful tomato sauce makes eggs much better than eggs could ever be.
Also, this dish takes less than 15 minutes, and it’s hearty.
Grab some whole grain bread, and start dipping right into that rich yolk. Thank me once you’ve cleared your plate.Print
