Homemade Shakshouka aka Tomato Sauce Poached Eggs (Recipe by Marina)
Traditionally, shakshouka is a dish of Middle Eastern descent, which is made up of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, chili peppers, onions, and often spiced with cumin. It’s really popular in Israel and many Israelis have taken this dish abroad to their expat restaurants. In fact, that is exactly how I came upon it.
While my parents were vacationing in the Carribean, they came upon an Israeli restaurant that served this dish for breakfast. My mother loved it and was able to recreate it upon her return. I then stole it from her and have made my own version of it. While it is typically baked in the oven, slowly, over a period of twenty minutes, I have been able to get the same results stove-top in under ten.
Here’s my version of Shakshouka.
So so so delicious! Try it!
