Author Notes

Shakshuka in Arabic = mixture.
Egypt Shakshuka is simply scrambled eggs and sold in a sandwich. Jordan, Yemen, Moroccan Shakshuka is a bit different. The sauce will be thicker or thinner depending on the cook and the vegetables in use are different. This dish is similar to the the Mexican breakfast "Vevoss Rantz'ros".
Suitable for breakfast, lunch and / or dinner. Suitable for every day and every season and the best fun is to wipe it with white bread by hand. Enjoy. —Elinoar Moore
