Shakshouka, huevos rancheros or uova in purgatorio – this breakfast dish is based on a spicy tomato sauce with eggs poached in the sauce, topped with fresh herbs. In an Arabian kitchen, this national dish is traditionally prepared in a cast-iron pan or tagine. Flat bread with a savoury sauce is also traditionally served with it. 

 

 

Tip:

Combine the savoury eggs in tomato sauce with your preferred ingredients, like spinach, feta cheese or seasoned bacon bits. There is no limit to what you can do with them!
