This Shakshuka may be small but it's big on flavor. It's filling, satisfying and delicious. Born in the Middle East, this ancient dish dates back all the way to the Ottoman Empire. It's usually a meal you share but in this version it's a little pan of liquid gold just for you.

Place your pitas in the sun to warm. If you didn't pre chop your onions, bells and garlic now is the time to do so. Place them on your cutting board and chop the bells and onions into half inch squares with your knife. Smash garlic and mince.
Assemble your stove and set burner to about low. Place your pan on the stove and let it heat up. If your pan is titanium that should take about 10-15 seconds. Add about a tbsp of olive oil.
Add your chopped peppers and onions and season with salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until charred and soft. About 3-4 minutes. Then add garlic and sizzle for another minute or until fragrant.
Add in diced tomatoes and stir occasionally until heated. Cook 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Add the cumin and paprika. Stir stir stir.
Time to poach the egg in the magic sauce. Make a well in the sauce and drop in the egg. Then cover. We used our mini cutting board to do this. Let poach only til the egg turns white. Remove from heat.
Grab your pita and rip into bite sized pieces. Dip it in the shakshuka and have yourself a mouth party!
