Shakshuka: Eggs Nested in Spicy Tomato Sauce
[Editor's Note: I'm always on the lookout for interesting breakfast ideas, and I'm a sucker for a spicy dish. This egg dish features plenty of heat from harissa, a Tunisian hot pepper sauce that adds a punch of taste along with its burn. It's a fiery way to wake up! --Genie]
A recipe for Shakshuka (shakshouka), or eggs nested in spicy tomato sauce
Shakshuka is a northern African dish, originally from Tunisia or Algeria (depends who you ask from) that has become extremely popular in Israel over the last decades. We were told on several occasion that this is one of the two dishes that every Israeli man knows how to cook (I cannot recall what was the other one. Anyone?). I'm sure Israeli women are pretty good in making this dish as well, but yes, it's mainly men who boast who can make and eat the most fragrant and spicy shakshuka for breakfast :)
