Mix it all up, sauté tomatoes, peppers and herbs, perhaps add a bit of garlic or Yemenite hot sauce. Top with farm fresh eggs and cook until bubbling, the aromas filling the house. That is all you need to make one of the most popular Israeli dishes- shakshuka. The rich, complex flavor belies its simple preparation- just fresh Mediterranean ingredients and a skillet. Although the tomato version is the most popular it can also be made with other vegetables such as spinach, cauliflower or potatoes.
