Smitten Kitchen’s Shakshuka
Smitten Kitchen’s Shakshuka has been on my list of things to try for a while…and yesterday’s rainy Saturday morning was the perfect time to try it! We started the morning at Rainbow Grocery, which sadly is not as awesome as Berkeley Bowl…quickly made and ate this shakshuka (I really like saying shakshuka!! *with jazz hands*)…went for a drizzly run…and then off to Elizabeth Street Brewery to sample some brews.
I halved the recipe and used three anaheim chiles. My fingers were tingly for the better part of the afternoon, which was a bit surprising since the anaheim chiles didn’t taste that spicy in the shakshuka. Although we had whole wheat pitas in the fridge, we sopped up the oozy egg yolks and spicy tomato sauce with the remnants of a fresh Acme sweet Italian loaf (the rest went into a breakfast casserole for a potluck brunch this morning). Quick, tasty and simple!
