THE FUTURIST! Makes Shakshuka

Actual photograph of completed dish
on THE FUTURIST!'s kitchen table

What you see above is the result of this recipe:

2 Tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves of garlic, crushed

1 (14 ounce) can diced fire-roasted tomatoes

1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced

1/2 teaspoon paprika

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

2 teaspoons tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 coarsely ground pepper

6 eggs

It is called SHAKSHUKA and it is an Israeli dish that is reminiscent of Huevos Rancheros.

THE FUTURIST! made this today, after finding the recipe in a magazine. It was not the greatest dish that he ever concocted from a culinary formula, but it was good. It took a while for the taste to become ingratriated with the taste buds. At first, it was a bit of an odd visitor to the tongue, but it made itself welcome after a few bites. It can feed 6 people. It is meant as a breakfast dish, but it was made today for a late lunch.

Above is an actual photograph of the completed dish before it was served.
Those are the six eggs you see resting atop the other ingredients.

Food For Futurists! A welcome addition to the blog! Looks impressive. And 6 eggs?! Did you eat it all yourself? If so, you're a regular Ian Fleming!


No ... it was shared.

THE FUTURIST! had a soft boiled egg for breakfast this morning, too!
