Shakshuka is a traditional North African dish that I found whilst looking for a way to use the eggs that our chickens keep firing out!

This shakshuka recipe may look a bit sloppy, but the subtle use of spice leaves a comforting tingle on the tongue and gives the shakshuka a full and rounded flavour. This shakshuka recipe will definitely be going on my breakfast menu!

We served it with a bit of french bread, but I suspect pitta might work a bit better 🙂
