Recipe of the week 🙂

Shakshuka is originated in North Africa, and like many great dishes there are as many versions of preparing the dish.

The dish makes an excellent brunch or lunch food. It is a one-skillet recipe of eggs, cooked in a tomato sauce spiced with cumin, paprika and cayenne.

First you make that sauce, which comes together fairly quickly on top of the stove, then you gently crack each of the eggs into the pan, nestling them into the sauce.

Pull the eggs off the heat and finish with a few cracks of black pepper, fresh cilantro leaves.
