I was aimlessly scrolling through Instagram this morning, while waiting for a cup of tea from MR M (he’s a good one), when I stumbled on Anna’s account (annasfamilykitchen) and the amazing photograph of her Shakshuka… my stomach started to grumble and I KNEW that would have been our brunch… bacon schmacon…
And so I did!
I’m going to copy the recipe here because something this good has to be shared:
INGREDIENTS for 4:⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2 red onions chopped⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3 garlic cloves crushed⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
1 red pepper⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
3 tsp Ras El Hanout⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
2 cans chopped tomatoes
400g can of chickpeas drained
2 tbsp balsamic vinegar⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
4 eggs ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
50g feta cheese
Fresh coriander or parsley to serve
Colour the onions for 5 minutes, add the peppers and garlic and colour for another 5 minutes.
Add the balsamic vinegar and then the Ras El Hanout. Give the pan a stir then add the chickpeas and tomatoes.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Simmer for 15 minutes or longer if you want a richer sauce.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Add the spinach. Give the pan a quick stir then make 4 wells in the sauce. Crack an egg into each.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sprinkle over the feta or mozzarella and put under a grill or in a hot oven for 5 minutes. Alternatively just pop a lid on the pan for 7-8 minutes.
Serve with crusty bread.
I didn’t have spinach so I used kale and also cheddar cheese instead of feta… and I didn’t have any coriander to garnish… It was still the best brunch recipe EVER. Warming, and tasty, beautiful to look at…
Definitively one to repeat!
