  • Israeli Shakshuka - AWESOME for breakky, lunch OR dinner (easy and HEALTHY)

    Hey all,

    This is a recipe my dad taught me (he's israeli) and also what I was taught when I visited Israel myself. There is really a variety of different ways to make it, after all shakshuka in hebrew means "mix-up", this is just my PERSONAL version of it... It's easy... Can be eaten any time of the day... Has no carbs apart from vegetables AND according to my friends "Takes ************ing AWESOME!".

    So here it is.
    For one person:

    - 2 eggs
    - Ground cumin (you can get it from the supermarket), middle eastern spice.
    - 1 tomato, mabe 2.
    - Half an onion
    - a clove of garlic
    - Chilli
    - Mushrooms
    - Chicken, wurst, salami, or whatever is in the fridge.
    -Olive oil
    - Salt

    - put the 2 eggs in a bowl, a teaspoon of cumin and the usual amount of salt you would use when you eat eggs.
    - Dice onion, crush garlic and put in abit of chilli (You won't taste it)
    - Dice mushrooms and tomatos into chunks
    - Dice chicken, wurst or salami into smal cubes. (Note: I've tried making it with kangaroo meat and beef - Not as nice)

    - Put a little oil in a medium frying pan and let it heat up then add onions, garlic and chilli.
    - Meanwhile cook the chicken in a little olive oil in a frying pan.
    - Just before the onions start changing colour towards brown, add the tomatoes and mushrooms AND add now cooked chicken pieces.
    - once the tomatoes are fully softened and mixed in with everything else, add spiced eggs.
    - Break the egg yolks in the mixture and slowly fold the egg into the mixture.
    - Remove from heat once the eggs are cooked but still moist and serve.

    ENJOY =)

    Known by all for his rugged good looks, irresistable charm and GREATEST of all... His incredible MODESTY

  • Sounds basic enough that I could cook this with ease.
    Consider it bookmarked for future reference
