Easy Sausage Shakshuka

Shakshuka has long been a personal favorite, but what follows is my updated, simplified recipe for a relatively quick breakfast during the week. Modify as needed, and enjoy!

Sausage Shakshuka
(1 serving)

1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/3 of an onion (chopped)
75g / 2.5oz of kielbasa (sliced or diced)
3 cloves of garlic
1 teaspoon of cumin
1 teaspoon of smoked paprika
1 bay leaf
Black pepper (to taste)
Cilantro (to taste)
Chili powder (to taste)
Parsley (to taste)
Salt (to taste)
250ml / 8.5oz of diced tomatoes*
2 eggs
Feta (to garnish)

*I like to use herby or garlicky diced tomatoes.

1) Heat about a tablespoon of olive oil in a medium skillet or pot over medium heat and sauté the onions and sausage until the onions begin to soften and become translucent.
2) Add the garlic and sauté for another couple of minutes.
3) Stir in the cumin and paprika and cook until fragrant (a minute max).
4) Throw in the other seasonings and the tomatoes, bring everything to a boil, and then make a couple of indentations in the sauce to crack the eggs into.
5) Cover the pot and simmer until the eggs reach your desired level of doneness.
6) Serve the shakshuka with a sprinkling of feta and the flatbread of your choice (my current favorite is paratha), and enjoy!
