Green Shakshuka

Shakshuka, or eggs poached in an aromatic tomato sauce, is a fast, one-pan breakfast staple originating from both Northern Africa and Israel. This healthy recipe features spinach, herbs and tomatillos. Garnish with a touch of harissa (a fiery chilli paste) and dip some toasted whole-grain country bread into the jammy yolks.

This is a dish that can be made as a takeaway too, so your mother, wife, other half, auntie, sister and or grandmother, ideally, don’t have to do any cooking this Mother’s Day, even during lockdown!
