Hello, I hope you had an eggcellent Easter celebrating with your family and friends. I think I like Easter more than Christmas. In our family there are no Easter traditions, so every year is different, but it always involves good food and catching up with family. This year we celebrated Easter Sunday, with a family brunch. My contribution was this Shakshuka. It was delicious and so easy to make. I can’t believe it was my first time making it. It is now my favourite egg recipe, beating omelettes hands down. No more sad omelettes for dinner when we haven’t been to the supermarket in a few days, I’ll be making Shakshuka for dinner!
So by this point, you’re probably wondering what Shakshuka is (me too when I tried to explain it to my family earlier)! It’s an onion, garlic, tomato and capsicum base, with poached eggs and plenty of spices that you can build on. By that I mean add in all the good stuff, such as more veggies, or some chorizo or bacon. I added some cannellini beans and mushrooms, but you could also add grated carrot, zucchini, eggplant, chickpeas, kidney beans or any vegetables you like.
To serve top it with fresh herbs, crumbled fetta or some labneh (cheesey yoghurt!), and pair it with corn tortillas or gluten free bread. It is absolutely delicious, I hope you enjoy!
