There is a meal, dear friends, that will make you as happy as happy can be - IF you can put your brain on the right track (and trust the sweet, sweet suggestions of a fat man who knows little in this world more than food). This dinner (or breakfast, or lunch, or snack, or whatever) is called shakshuka.
The only mandate for shakshuka - a dish that originated in Northern Africa but is now popular in Tunisia, Egypt, Morocco, Algeria, and these United States - is poached eggs. Shakshuka, you see, means (loosely) "mixture" or "to shake".
Want to make shakshuka? Yeah you do, dirty-dirty. Pick your base:
- Tomato sauce
- Purred spinach, green beans, and zucchini
- Green beans
- Red peppers
- Grilled onions
- Sriracha sauce
- Cheese (bleu, parmesan, cheddar, alllllll the varietals)
