Let’s be honest – when summer rolls around, I get lazy with cooking. When I’d rather stroll outside than sweat in the kitchen, I fancy simple dishes like Shakshuka that yield delicious results. One pot, one casual hour of stirring, and tons of forgivability. Don’t have the exact amount of garlic? Forget the cumin? Only have 4 eggs instead of 6? That is quite alright. It will still taste amazing. As a thick stew of rich, fragrant tomatoes with soft-boiled eggs, Shakshuka is the ultimate breakfast.
I love to serve this as a no-hassle, tasty, and healthful brunch item when friends come over. Shakshuka is impressively flavorful and hearty without the fuss, so I can get on with making actually intensive food. (Like homemade grissini. Wow, never again.)
