How loosely can we use the term ‘shakshuka’? For the sake of naming, brunch, and simple deliciousness… I’m going to say we can be loose, very loose.
Shakshuka, typically and traditionally, is a common Israeli dish that involves simmering eggs in a brothy nest of stewed tomatoes and peppers. The eggs bake in the spiced tomatoes and, served with warm pita, makes for a deeply heart satisfying breakfast.
My shakshuka dish is hardly the traditional bright red, and is clearly sprinkled with more roasted corn than salty feta cheese.
