You know when something is so delicious and then you find out it’s also good for you so you eat the entire pot? What? You don’t? Liar. I kind of had one of those moments with this dish. It’s called Shakshuka and it’s brimming with antioxidant loaded tomatoes and omega filled eggs, so you don’t even have to pretend it’s good for you! The spicy, stewed tomato dish definitely doesn’t taste like health food! It’s rich and filling but not in a now-I-have-to-put-on-stretchy-pants-and-roll-to-the-couch kinda way. And luckily I live alone because I definitely hoovered down more than my fair share. All in the name of antioxidants, of course.
The other reason I love this dish. The name! Shakshuka! It’s just so much fun to say! I don’t want to start WWIII stating where this dish is originally from. So instead let’s just say it comes from either Israel or North Africa. But it’s no wonder there’s disputes over it’s origin, it’s skillet slurping deliciousness! I’d claim it came from my own kitchen, sadly that’s a big fat lie. So, to Israel and North Africa, you beat me to it but thank-you.
