As a base, I've used fresh or canned tomato, and I've done it with a puree and with diced. Just cook it down to get the consistency you want. I like to brown the shit out of onion, bell pepper, and garlic alike, before I add the tomato to cook down.
As for spices, I go with salt, pepper, cumin, than add some chili powder and a bit of cayenne.
Garnish with green onion, and serve with bread. This is an excellent meal with corn bread.
>>7369319 whatever floats around your fridge I´d say. yesterday I made one with chorizo and eggplants, a couple of weeks ago with leftover roasted mutton an red bell peppers. For herbs or spices, I´d say definitely chopped parsley, cumin if you´re in the mood, paprika, Oregano, marjoram,thyme,etc... the only obligatory things for me are eggs and the tomato based Sauce.
Dishes like this always make me think that traditional cooking is kind of a goof. It's one of those universal dishes. Literally 'a mix' where you basically just throw whatever you have into it. Every culture has this same kind of dish. Why don't we stop using all these stupid bullshit names like "shacksocks" or whatever and just call it a fucking mix. Or something. It's just stupid and backwards in a modern, secular world.
>>7369396 Anon I know that "secular" is a big word for people like you and that's okay, but please at least use google to learn what it means before posting.
It means that something is worldly, or in other words beyond cultural or national bounds. In this context it means using a 'secular name' across all nations for these types of dishes rather than closed-minded old-language names that vary across the world but all mean the same thing.
Love shakshuka. Easy to make, stays good in the fridge for a long time, filling, and reasonably healthy. I keep mine pretty simple. Brown onions and bell peppers, throw diced tomatoes and tomato paste, let reduce a bit and get to the right consistency. Cumin, curry powder, cayenne, and cracked pepper. Toss them eggs on and let them cook to your preference. Boom. Easy peasy. Works well as a topping as well for things like grilled chicken or fish.
