Shakshuka is a wonderful Middle Eastern dish that can be eaten for brekkie, lunch or dinner. It is a basic mix of onion, red peppers, chilli (optional), garlic and tomatoes cooked into a sauce, into which eggs are placed and then baked. What a winner! It is perfect served with toasted or grilled sourdough, or to make a dinner meal go further then add a large green salad, or extra baked veggies, which can be cooking in the oven whilst you are preparing the Shakshuka.
