Shakshuka is a typical Middle Eastern breakfast. We're not really used to a heavy breakfast like this but I absolutely love it. You can, of course, also serve it for lunch.
Healthy, no effort and intense flavour.
The combination of spices are very intens and flavourfull. I really love it with toasted bread. I have a perfect sourdough recipebut it takes some time to make a sourdough bread. This dish does need some cooking time. You want to get rid of the sourness of the tomato and you can do that by letting it simmer for a bit.
I added a bit of harissa on top. Harissa is a mixture of chilipeppers and gave it an extra kick.
