Spinach shakshuka
Shakshuka is a great breakfast, lunch or dinner that originated in Africa and is very popular in Israel. The traditional Shakshuka is with tomatoes but I love this twist on it. It tastes like a spinach quiche.

  1. Prepare a large skillet on high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and get hot. Add onions and cook, mixing, for 3 minutes. Add spicy pepper,garlic, salt and curry powder and 4 tablespoons of water and mix.
  2. Turn down heat to medium and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Let cook for 5 minutes, mixing occasionally. Add fresh herbs and spinach and mix well.
  3. With a spoon, make 6 small holes in the mixture for the six eggs. Crack them and add them to the holes. Cover and let cook for 3-4 minutes, depending on how runny you like your eggs. Add more salt to taste and serve with warm whole wheat pita!
Notes & Tips:

Feel free to add your favorite cheese to the mix right after you add the eggs.

Enlarged Israeli salad
I love Israeli salad but it is very time consuming! Here is an alternative that is just as crunchy, fresh and flavorful but hardly any work at all. I used goat feta cheese for this because I love the flavor (and it is much less salt) but feel free to use regular feta cheese or Bulgarian cheese.

Leftover tips for tomorrow’s lunch:

Place all leftover shakshuka into a pita with some techina (tehini) and you will have a sandwich that all your coworkers wish they had!

Even though this salad is dressed it will hold over pretty well until tomorrow!
