The fortieth recipe I made with the Eating with Ellie group is Eggs in a Skillet With Spicy Tomato and Bell Pepper Sauce (Shakshuka), can be found in Ellie Krieger's book Weeknight Wonders, on page 227, and was chosen by Chaya.
Ingredient list: onion, red bell pepper, olive oil, garlic, paprika, cumin, red pepper flakes, coriander, salt, canned diced tomatoes, eggs, goat cheese, and parsley.
In my world eggs and tomatoes should not be touching. Ever. Or so I thought. I put off doing this recipe for the longest time as I could not imagine making, or eating, tomatoes and eggs touching. For whatever strange and odd reason today, I made this recipe and I even ate it. And I liked it!! All the spices make for a very lovely tasting sauce, not so tomato-y as I had imagined, and I did make the egg more solid than runny as there is only so far I am willing to go on that whole runny egg scene that is currently sweeping the nation. Such a surprise for me that I am thinking of repeating this. Soon. Fast, easy, delicious.
