Shakshuka is essentially eggs poached in spicy tomato sauce.  It is popular throughout the middle east, but particularly in Israel where it can be served for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.  There are countless variations – many include greens or other vegetables along with the sauce.  This recipe is a good starting point, but you can add whatever vegetables you have on-hand along with the peppers and onions in the first step.

Make sure to leave the yolks very runny.  Even if this isn’t your normal preference, the yolk works well with the avocado and potatoes.
