Oh wow, this dish is the nuts! It honestly is so tasty that you feel like you are indulging in something really quite naughty when in fact at it’s core this is poached eggs in a spicy tomato sauce and there is positively nothing naughty in that at all.
The dish originates from the Middle East and The word Shakshouka literally means “a mixture” in Arabic slang.
It’s bloody delicious.
We will have this on the weekends for breakfast although it’s an any time kind of meal which can be lapped up with or without bread or perhaps even potatoes if that’s your bag.
Let’s go for it…
What you need:
2 sweet red peppers
3 cloves of garlic
8 ripe tomatoes
hot chillis or jalapenos – or without, whatevs!
teaspoon paprika (we also added ancho chilli flakes for more kick)
Eggs (we went for 2 per person)
salt and pepper
