Shakshuka

I can’t lie I’m struggling with finding exciting meals at the moment.

We aren’t leaving the house to shop for as long as possible, and although we have plenty of food, trying to find inspiration when you have limited ingredients is hard.

Don’t get me wrong i completely understand this is still such a first world problem, and I’m incredibly grateful that we do have food, so I’m trying my best to be inventive.

With that said, i headed into my archive for this one.

I think i saw it first time on a blog, and when we have time for a sit down breakfast or brunch its always a winner.

There’s lots of different recipes for this, and ours changes a lot, but that’s why it’s great, because it’s so adaptable.

However the recipe below is a good base point, from there you can add a whole host of stuff.

My favourite addition is chorizo, just add when cooking the onion, and then sprinkle on feta before you put on the lid.

You can add chunks of sausages, more spice, spinach, more peppers, sundried tomatoes, olives, kale, cheese, the options are endless.

Then serve up with crusty bread, or as part of your traditional English breakfast or like us some hash browns.

Ingredients serves 4

1 tin of tomatoes
Half a onion
1 pepper – any colour
4 eggs
1 garlic glove
2tsp of paprika
1tsp of cumin
1tsp if chilli flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for cooking

Method

1. Chop up your onion and peppers.

2. Find a big pan with a lid, heat to a medium/high heat and add around a tablespoon of oil.

3. Add your onions and fry for a few minutes then add your peppers, garlic and spices.

4. Fry for a few more minutes then add your tinned tomatoes, and bring to a simmer. If using whole tinned tomatoes break them up a bit with a spoon.

5. Make four little wells and crack in your eggs. Put on the lid and let cook for 5 to 8 minutes.

Then serve.
