Delicious and healthy. It's extra yummy with the poblano chile but doesn't suffer too much if you don't have any on hand ... try sautéing a little onion instead and/or more tomato.
Paprika Tomatoes with Poached Eggs (Shakshouka)
Time: 45 minutes. Traditionally, cooks in Tunisia and Israel use a lot of olive oil when making this one-pan tomato and egg dinner, but this lighter version still has enough to help free the tomatoes' lycopene.
