Chakchouka is a style of vegetable cooking from the Middle East and the Mahgreb (the North African countries bordering the Mediterranean, such as Tunisia and Morocco). The dishes always contain onions and garlic, and usually tomatoes and peppers; very often, a veil of beaten egg is poured over during the final stages of cooking. Serve with freshly grilled pitta bread.
Replace the fresh chillies with a drop of Tabasco sauce or a small pinch of crushed chillies.
This makes a great brunch dish, too, with a little Waitrose Cooks' Ingredients Kashmiri Saffron or ground turmeric added to the egg mix.
