Shakshuka

The perfect brunch (or dinner) for when you fancy something savoury that comes together in less than 20 minutes.  

 

INGREDIENTS

(serves 2)

  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 400g tin chopped tomatoes 
  • 1 tbsp harissa paste 
  • 1 tsp cumin 
  • 1 tsp paprika 
  • 4 eggs 
  • Salt and pepper to taste 
  • Parsley, chopped 

METHOD 

  1. In a medium saucepan/skillet add the olive oil and saute the onions on a low heat for a few minutes before adding the crushed garlic. 
  2. Cook the garlic for another minute before adding in the harissa paste, spices and tinned tomatoes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. 
  3. Let this simmer on a low heat for 5 or so minutes for the flavours to develop. 
  4. Make 4 wells in the tomato sauce around the edge of the pan and crack each egg into a well. 
  5. Cover the saucepan with a lid and cook the eggs for about 5 minutes (or until the whites have just solidified). 
  6. Garnish with chopped parsley, more salt and pepper and it’s ready to serve. 
  7. Enjoy with crusty bread or warm fluffy pita and serve with a chopped salad and a drizzle of tahini.
