Shakshuka

The name looks funny, and I am not even sure how to pronounce it lol But this dish is incredibly easy to make and does not take a lot of ingredients.  My favorite type of recipes are the ones that you can customize to suit your tastes and this is def one of those...add veggies that you like...it's easy to play around with this recipe - the quantities don't have to be exact for it to taste good. I like to add loads of veggies like broccoli, & carrots. You can also add pieces of meat or low fat cheese. It's best served with some wholewheat pita bread, or wholewheat couscous



This is a popular Israeli dish made from eggs and tomatoes and it's incredibly easy to prepare!

  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 large tomatoes (or half a can of crushed tomatoes)
