Middle East

Shakshuka

by The Charlie on Thu, January 14, 2016

This is a hugely satisfying Middle-Eastern recipe. Eggs are poached in a tomato sauce until perfectly cooked. It’s hearty, satisfying and very delicious. Makes a perfect breakfast or brunch, too. Make sure you have plenty of crusty bread to mop up the sauce!

A perfect breakfast/brunch dish!

Serves 2 - 3 people

Make it spicier by spiking it with some chillies.

You can also bake the dish in a skillet in an oven.
