Try quick, inexpensive shakshuka for lunch or dinner, too!
At pretty much any cafe you stop by in Jerusalem (and plenty of meat restaurants as well), you'll see shakshuka on the menu? What is it? A dish of North African origin, that consists of eggs cooked in a spicy tomato sauce. Sounds simple? It is, but its delicious, cheap and great for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
It's originally a fairly spicy dish, but it is easy to tone that up or down depending on your preference. My recipe calls for a can of crushed tomatoes, but you can start with fresh, you'll just need a lot longer to cook them down into a sauce. Classically this dish is made in a cast iron skillet (which makes it easier to finish off in the oven), but just a regular old frying pan will work too.
