Yair's yummy breakfast 1 - shakshuka

Shakshuka is a North African dish brought to Israel by Sephardi Jews. It’s a fantastic weekend brunch dish.

Ingredients – for 2

1 small onion finely chopped

1/2 small red pepper finely chopped

1 large clove garlic finely chopped

1 small red chilli finely chopped

handful parsley finely chopped

1 large chopped beef tomato (skinned and finely chopped)

2 eggs

Add olive oil to a frying pan and heat gently. Then add the onion and fry gently until soft and a bit translucent. Add the garlic, pepper, chilli, half of parsley and tomato - cook on a low heat until soft but not dry for about 15 to 20 minutes – add a bit of extra olive oil if necessary. After this time add a tablespoon of tom puree and mix well. Taste and season with salt and pepper. Then break two eggs into the mix in let them cook until white is firm. Sprinkle over the rest of the parsley and serve with pitta bread or turkish bread.
