for ducking into the sauce and watery thralldom, it’s one of our each-time favourite egg fashions that just so happens to be weeknight-friendly.

Simple but scrumptious, shakshuka is a one-skillet mess that doesn’t bear veritably numerous constituents and can be switched up according to the veggies you have on hand. Throw in a red bell pepper with the onions if you need to use up your yield from history’s taco night, or add Swiss chard rather than spinach if that’s all you’ve got. Sprinkle in some feta or Parmesan rubbish for a little salty funk or add a gusto of fresh cilantro, parsley, or basil at the end to amp everything up. No matter how you make it, shakshuka is a tasty, hearty brunch, lunch or submissive regale.
