Recipe : Green Shakshuka

A twist on Shakshuka

Shakshuka is a Middle East/North African dish which is traditionally eaten for breakfast. But we have no rules in this house, so we ate it for lunch. This serves two for lunch or one hungry Mr Foodie. Its Vegetarian and can be made vegan friendly as well – maybe add tofu or vegan cheese?

Usually there is a lot more tomato in Shakshuka, but this is different. Some beans and greenery make it a belly filler with just a hint of tomato.
