Eggs are definitely on the list of my top 10 favorite foods. They are versatile, delicious, and never disappoint anytime of the day. While most people reserve eggs for breakfast, I think they can be best enjoyed for dinner. I especially love them fried on top of almost anything from burgers to noodles. A fried egg makes any dish taste that much better. Don’t you think so?
For dinner last night I wanted something simple that involved eggs, this lead to the shakshouka. I had a shakshouka for the first time while in New York for Thanksgiving at Jack’s Wife Freda. They had a green shakshouka served with challah bread, that I immediately fell in love with. Ever since that time I have always tried my own variations at home with tomatoes, spinach and other ingredients that are on hand. After all shakshouka does mean mixture, and I enjoy experimenting with different combinations of mixtures. This shakshouka that I adapted from frites & fries, incorporated chickpeas, spinach, and crushed tomatoes for a satisfying and comforting dinner that could also be enjoyed for breakfast.
