Spicy shakshuka


Perfect Sunday lunch yesterday, spicy shakshuka, or mediterranean eggs. This really is a delicious meal and very easy to make.

Mediterranean eggs for three

You’ll need onion, red pepper, 1-2 cloves of garlic, small red chili, tin of crushed tomatoes, 3 eggs, paprika, salt and pepper, and grated cheese and fresh parsley to go on top.

Chop the onion, pepper and chili. Heat a large frying pan and add a good mount of olive oil. Saute the onion first for 5 min, add the pepper and continue for 5 min. Then add the garlic and cili, continue for a few minutes and add the tomatoes. Season well and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until the sauce is thicker. Make three small wholes into the mixture with a spoon and break the eggs, one into each whole. Cover the pan with a lid and simmer for another 5 minutes, until the egg white is cooked, but the yolk still runny. Sprinkle with grated cheese and drizzle of olive oil and some fresh herbs according to your taste.

Warm welcome to my blog. I’m Hanna, a nurse and also very passioned about healthy nutritious food and how it affects our overall health and wellbeing, both physical and mental. Eating right is the most important thing you can do to stay healthy. Not just cutting down sugar, grains and excess carbohydrates, but also choosing nutritious and good quality foods, such as good vegetables, berries, herbs and spices, is extremely important.
