Shakshuka – a craze that is sweeping New York… It looks stunning and fancy but guess what – It’s super easy! We will break down to you, step by step how to make this fancy Brunch dish…
Inspiration from ” The Hamilton’s Shakshuka ”
2 cups Whole Canned Tomatoes
1 Medium Spanish Onion, peeled and sliced thily
4 Cloves Garlic, sliced thinly
1 tsp. Ground Coriander
2 tsp. Salt
1 tbsp. Picked Cilantro Leaves
1 tbsp. Sliced Scallions
1/4 Full Fat Greek Yoghurt
2-3 Slices of Bread or Pita
Whole Eggs (as many as you’d like)
1 quart Cold Water
1/4 c. White Distilled Vinegar
2-3 tbsp. Canola or Grapeseed OIl
– In a small, thick bottomed pot heat the oil until it starts to shimmer (picture looking down the highway and seeing the heat radiating off the blacktop on a hot summers day).
– Add the onions and garlic with a pinch of salt and cook until they soften and start to caramelize. Add the tomato product, harissa and ground coriander and bring to a gentle simmer. Allow to simmer at least a half an hour to allow the flavors to get to know one another. (It gets better the longer you cook it and infinitely better if it has the chance to sit overnight after you’ve cooked it)
– In another small pot take the quart of water and vinegar and bring to a gentle simmer. Once the water is bubbling gently take a slotted spoon and stir the the water in a circular fashion to create a “whirlpool”, while the water is spinning in the pot crack the eggs in one at a time. This whirling motion helps prevent the eggs from sticking on the bottom while the exterior sets.
– Gently simmer the eggs about 3 minutes or until they are cooked as soft or firm as you like, remove them with the slotted spoon and place onto a plate with some paper towel to blot off any remaining water.
– Grill or toast your bread of choice.
– Get your serving vessel and gently place the eggs in the center, spoon the tomato base over the eggs and dollop a spoonful of the yoghurt overtop. Garnish with the cilantro and scallions and your toasty bread. Eat and enjoy!
