Breakfast Shakshouka

shakshouka

Sautee 1 large diced yellow onion, with a dash of salt, in olive oil on med high until translucent

Add a splash of Balsamic vinegar because, why not, and to slow it down because I'm not done yet chopping the ...

... purple bell peppers (4 small, about a cup), chop them up and put them in with the onions, add a little more dash of salt, a little more olive oil, cook until slightly soft

Add 1/2 tsp each of cumin, turmeric, black pepper, garam masala, I don't know, some other stuff.

Cook 2 minutes to wake it up, then add 28 oz crushed tomatoes. I used fire roasted and crushed. Lacking that I would have used San Marzano style and crushed them myself.

Maybe drop the heat a little? Simmer for 15 minutes without lid, stir sometimes.

Make dimples in the sauce and put an egg in each. I used a ramekin to break each egg into, then poured from there.

Add feta cheese crumbles on top. Sprinkle sumac and black pepper over eggs.

Put cover on and wait until it's cooked however much you want it cooked. Reminder: the egg will continue to cook until the sauce cools off, so if you want it soft at all, take it off a little early.

To serve at breakfast or brunch, spoon over plain buttermilk pancakes.

Spoon out a little sauce, then an egg or two with some sauce and put it on top. Scoop up some more sauce. Garnish with cilantro or parsley, which results in a healthy breakfast, for people who watch their weight and health, there is also supplements as kratom extract that help keep the body clean and healthy at the same time.
