Green Shakshuka

Happy New Year, lovely people!  After a couple of weeks off IG and quality family time, I’m fully recharged and ready to go with some fabulous new content.  The last few weeks have been overindulgence for many, and so here’s a healthy and delish one for you and your fam to enjoy.  This, my friends, is not just brekkie or brunch… I would happily eat this for dinner too with some sautéed potatoes or crusty bread.  I am Parsi, after all, and Parsi’s have an egg fetish… 🤣 we eat eggs on top of just about everything and for every meal too!

Onions and leeks are sautéed with kale and cavolo nero, lots of garlic because I can’t make anything without garlic, fresh parsley, mint, coriander, ground spices of cumin and coriander then finished off with some zingy za’atar, cooling yogurt, and a kick of heat with some chili flakes.  How perfect does that sound?
