Shakshuka is a playful little dish of eggs baked in a spiced tomato sauce. It’s a cheap, easy, and delightful skillet meal that tastes especially fantastic when showered with feta. I added some kale to round out the meal, but it’s really all about those tender yolks. They’re begging for a triangle of warm pita to pierce their fragile skins,
so they can swirl into the cheesy sauce like lava.
