What do you get when you mix together bell peppers, onions, spices and tomatoes? A rich savory sauce. What do you get when you crack an egg in the middle and let it cook to a nice runny yolk> SHAKSHUKA! Ellie says it’s the Middle Eastern version of ‘eggs in purgatory’. David Lebovitz says it has North African origins. It is spicy and can be quite hot if you use enough crushed red pepper. It will definitely wake you up if you eat if for breakfast. Which is what I did.


The spices include cumin, coriander, crushed red pepper and paprika whichcombine to provide a rich, flavorful dish. And as if that wasn’t enough – goat cheese {I used an herb-y one} is sprinkled on top.

This week’s pick was from Chaya and it was definitely a breakfast I could get used to.
