I love eggs. And I’m Italian so I also love tomato sauce. Fortunately my toddler loves those things too!
Shakshouka is a middle eastern breakfast dish that combines the two beautifully. My version is likely more Italian than the traditional recipe but it’s simple and fast so it suits me and my family perfectly.
This is an excellent way to get good protein and even some veggies into your diet before 10am! I’ve also added some turmeric in for some anti-inflammatory aid which is essential for pretty well anyone and everyone.
2-3tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 large clove garlic
1 small onion
1tbsp turmeric powder
Roughly chop the garlic, onion and tomatoes for a more rustic feel (or an, I just got out of bed and still haven’t quite woken up yet feel..). Sauté garlic and onion in the olive oil until softened then add the tomatoes and stir for a few minutes until they release their juices then add the turmeric and stir. Make three wells in the sauce and crack an egg into each. Put a lid on the pan and let simmer until eggs are nicely poached. Serve with toast.
This would also make an excellent addition to a breakfast wrap with perhaps some homemade breakfast sausage for a more portable breakfast!
