By JForrester 04 Oct 2021

Shakshuka is a dish that most probably originates from Northern Africa, it has travelled far and wide and now you can find variations in the Middle East and Europe. It's one of my favourite hearty brunch dishes which will set you up for the day!

- Can of tinned tomatoes

-3 cloves of garlic (or more if you like)

  1. Fry the onions and garlic in a pan
  2. After a couple of minutes add the peppers to the pan
  3. When the onions and peppers are softened add a tin of tomatoes, stir in the chilli, paprika, salt and pepper
  4. After around ten minutes all of the veg should be soft and the seasoning should be nicely mixed into the sauce, mix in most of the coriander and parsley, make a well in the sauce and drop in the eggs.
  5. Crumble the feta onto the top of the sauce and egg, pop a lid on the pan and wait for the eggs to poach.
  6. When your eggs are cooked through, sprinkle a little more parsley and coriander over the top and serve with bread

TIP If you are having trouble cooking the eggs through you can finish the dish off by cooking under the grill
