I thought it was about time I added some simple brunch recipes to the blog. Who doesn’t love brunch? When the boy suggested cooking shakshuka, I didn’t have a clue what he was talking about. Turns out it’s pretty damn delicious.
Ingredients (serves two):
1 x tin of chopped tomatoes
1 x courgette
4 x medium eggs
1 x onion
2 x cloves of garlic
Hot chilli powder
Finely slice the onions and soften for five minutes in a little olive oil, then finely chop the garlic and add to the onions.
Chop the courgette and add to the garlic and onions, along with a teaspoon of paprika and half a teaspoon of chilli powder. Cover and cook for five minutes.
Next add the tomatoes and cover and cook for ten minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Then use a wooden spoon to make four holes to add the eggs.
Add one egg to each of the holes, cover and cook for three to four minutes on a low heat or until the eggs are cooked. Whilst the eggs are cooking, toast some pita bread.
Not the prettiest sight on the plate, but a truly yummy Sunday brunch.
