Shakshuka is a wonderful Middle Eastern breakfast dish made for sharing in the centre of the table. It consists of a chunky tomato and capsicum sauce in which eggs are gently poached. It originates back to the Ottoman Empire and many different regional variations have flourished over the years. You can’t go wrong with a dish made from eggs, tomatoes, vegetables and bread. It provides an incredibly balanced meal with a good source of protein, healthy fats and fibre rich vegetables.
I’ve added my own twist on this dish by adding a drizzle of coriander pesto just before serving.
