One thing about me you have to know is that I really really love food. I eat when I'm happy. I eat when I'm sad. I eat when I drink and when I'm sober. Food makes me happy almost as much as photography does.
I also love to cook. Not every day and not very complicated dishes but when I have cooking mojo, oh man... I can spend hours in the kitchen. I woke up today and I knew what I want to eat. Something easy but very tasty, something I can do quickly and something that will make my husband jealous. Shakshuka :)
The best thing about this dish is that you can add whatever you want to the basic ingredients. For the one today I used:
The beauty of shakshuka is that's it's a one pot dish. There are different recipes, some on them will tell you to add everything to a frying pan and just leave it there for few minutes - other will tell you to fry everything separately. I don't have time for separately.
I added everything except cheese, eggs, hummus and sprinkles to a pot. Mixed everything and checked if it's enough spicy. It was. Then I left it in the pot for 15 minutes in the oven (180 degrees). When pepper was soft and lovely I cracked in two eggs and left it for another 10 minutes. My eggs were a little bit overcooked so the next time I will leave it for 7-8 minutes. Ohhh waiting was a nightmare but it was so worth waiting!
Just before I served it I sprinkled crushed feta cheese, chives and bittercress on the top. Ate it with hummus and believe me, it was soooo good! Enjoy!
Have a lovely day!
