In the beginnings of my being active on Instagram, one of my single followers posted Shakshuka. I had never heard of it before and my interest was instantly peaked. Shame on me, because I soon discovered that it’s a hugely popular dish.
The origins of the dish aren’t very clear (Tunisia, Yemen,…?), but what I can tell you is that it’s a vegetarian recipe made up out of poached eggs in tomato sauce. You can spice it up, or add saffron, or coriander (yuck ;-)), but you can’t leave out the cumin.
Singlemade wouldn’t be Singlemade if you wouldn’t get the bare bones version that’s ready in just 15 minutes! It serves 2 persons, but you can eat whatever’s left over cold or reheat it!

Carine served the Shakshuka with Greek pasta. She’s not one for poached eggs, but she confirms it’s an easy recipe! 😉
Stijn warns for the cumin’s taste. Don’t overdo it, if you’re not a fan. And he fried his onion some more because… well he likes fried onions. 😉 If you want to add spice, don’t go easy on the cayenne pepper!
