Recipe for shakshuka

Serves 6

A North African and Middle Eastern specialty, shakshuka is a one-pot dish of eggs poached in a rich tomato-bell pepper sauce. It can be served for breakfast or dinner. To turn this into the spicy spread matbucha, (which has no eggs), add a chili pepper or two and cook the sauce 1 hour more. Serve both dishes with fresh pita.
