Recipe: Shakshuka Tomatoes & Eggs | FOOD

I love a good brunch dish and this shakshuka recipe is a pretty strong contender to my beloved smashed avocado on toast which is my usual go to brunch choice. Shakshuka is a North African and Middle Eastern tomato based dish with eggs cracked straight into it.

The eggs are gently poached in the tomato mixture and if you time it just right, serve it when the yolk is still runny, making it perfect for dipping some bread into. The chilli and the spices give this dish a fiery kick but if you don’t want it too hot then you can skip the crushed chillis.

It’s completely vegetarian and you could even leave the eggs out to make it vegan – just pair it with some bread to dip in all that delicious juice.A sprinkle of extra feta would take this dish to the next level – that’s what I’m going to do when I next make this.
