Shakshuka

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.

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.
