Shakshuka With ME

Besides being a fun word to say, Shakshuka is beyond delicious. I had never heard of it before I went to Kanella a few months ago, and thats when the love affair began. A traditional Israeli dish, Shakshuka is made up of poached eggs in a flavorful and spicy tomatoe sauce. Poached eggs are my favorite style of eggs, and when they are poached in a homemade and spiced sauce, they take on a whole new depth. I made up my own recipe and its ready in 20 minutes start to finish. The sauce is complex in flavor with hints of cinnamon, paprika, and chilli powder in every bite. Its a simple breakfast, or a great brunch dish that when served with a side of crusty bread, CANNOT be beat. Shoutout to my Shakshuka loving girl Sara for opening my eyes to this dish.


olive oil
1 vidalia onion
1 yellow pepper
cilantro leaves
1 16 oz. can diced tomatoes, with juices
1 tbs tomato paste
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp chili powder
a FEW red pepper flakes
2 eggs

Recipe: Slice the onion and peper into thin strips. Coat the bottom of a skillet with olive oil and heat on high until very hot. Add in the onion and pepper, stirring every few minutes so they get a nice sear. Season with all of the spices and add the cilantro.

Once tender, add in tomatoes with juices and tomato paste. Then cover with a lid and let cook down for 10 minutes on medium heat.

 Remove the lid and crack the eggs on top of the sauce. Cover with the lid and let eggs set for about 7 minutes, until perfectly poached.
 Getting there..

Sprinkle with salt, eat, and sink into heaven.
