vegetarian “trash” hash

by Jackie Newgent  |  January 25, 2016  |  0 Comments
Okay, so maybe there’s a better name for this recipe. But you get the point, right? Way, way, way, WAY too much food gets wasted in America! But there’s no need to waste food when you can savor it! My philosophy: Use veggie scraps and “make a hash, not more trash!” It’s a wonderful and environmentally-conscious way to enjoy vegetables in the morning (or anytime). Perfect for a Meatless Monday! Here I simply included leftover veggies that I had on hand from recipe testing, which was about one-half cup each of chopped red onion, green bell pepper (I used the ribs and seeds, too), zucchini, and cherry tomatoes. This recipe also offers a delicious opportunity to play with all parts...

I love this word: “shakshuka”! That’s almost enough to sell me on the dish. But it’s truly the taste that keeps me intrigued. And if you haven’t had it before, you’re in for a real palate pleaser. Shakshuka is a Middle-Eastern-style spiced-up dish of eggs poached in a saucy mixture of tomatoes, peppers, and onions. It’s often made with canned tomatoes; but I enjoy hitting the farmers’ market and picking up juicy ripe local tomatoes to make it a seasonal delight. Here I’ve kept the spices light to make everyone’s tastebuds happy. But you can always add extra spice if you’re into more intensity or prefer one spice, like paprika or cinnamon, to stand out! This shakshuka is a lovely...
