Shakshuka

When you are neck deep into your fridge complaining that you don’t have anything to eat  – despite your fridge being full, consider making some shakshuka! This easy egg dish can work with almost any veggie that you have in your fridge. My go-to choices are mushrooms, peppers, onions and olives. All you need to do is sautée your favourite veggies, and then add in a can of tomato sauce. I recommend adding fresh tomatoes, and then putting in only a bit of sauce to thicken it. However, if you are looking to cut time, skip the fresh tomatoes and a pasta sauce will work fine. Let the sautéed veggies stew with the sauce for a while, and once it’s bubbling and thick crack some eggs on top. Cover your pan up with a lid so that the eggs cook on top, and after about 10 minutes you will be left with poached eggs in a bed of saucy sautéed veggies. I like to season the sauce with garlic, cayenne, basil and fresh cilantro on top. But like I said, this dish is the epitome of flexibility, any spices will work! Shakshuka is delicious and quick, it’s perfect for a busy week night!
