I'm so very obsessed with food. I should seriously weigh about 400 lbs. I eat when I'm bored. I think about food when I'm bored. I go grocery shopping when I'm bored. This can't be a good habit right? I guess thats where my running habit also comes into play. These two recipes are delicious! Jeremy is not a fan of either, because he does not like peppers/onions, nor does he like eggs. He's crazy. First up is the stir fry.
Here is the shakshuka recipe: (I can't remember the recipe for the stir fry because I forgot to copy it down before giving back the book, but it doesn'tt need exact measurements, and I believe that I mentioned all of the ingredients above)
1/4 cup olive oil
2 Chipotle peppers, and 1 jalapeno, stemmed, seeded, and finely chopped
1/2 small yellow onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed then sliced
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 14.5-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, undrained (you can also use fresh tomatoes)
salt, to taste
feta cheese, crumbled
1 tablespoon chopped flat-leaf parsley
Heat oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add chiles and onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until soft and golden brown, about 6 minutes. Add garlic, cumin, and paprika, and cook, stirring frequently, until garlic is soft, about 2 more minutes.
Put tomatoes and their liquid into a medium bowl and crush with your hands. Add crushed tomatoes and their liquid to skillet along with 1/2 cup water, reduce heat to medium, and simmer, stirring occasionally, until thickened slightly, about 15 minutes. Season sauce with salt.
Crack eggs over sauce so that eggs are evenly distributed across sauce’s surface. Cover skillet and cook until yolks are just set, about 5 minutes. Using a spoon, baste the whites of the eggs with tomato mixture, being careful not to disturb the yolk. Sprinkle shakshuka with feta and parsley.
Enjoy with pita, pasta, bread or toast! (or anything else you think might be good!)
