I was just explaining shakshuka to my roommates. Of course, @randwiches reads my mind.
Shakshuka with Advieh bolognese
Shakshuka has been on my kitchen’s marker board for months! If you have ANY sort of leftover tomato sauce, this will work as a quick breakfast. If your sauce seized up in the fridge and looks a little dry, stir in a splash of water or cream until it is saucy. Pour it into an oven-safe baking dish (or ramekin if you’re dining solo like me). Heat it up in the toaster oven or full oven until the tomato sauce bubbles. While you wait, cut a pat of butter and ready an egg. Once the sauce is ready, throw in the butter and crack the egg on top of it. Continue to bake until the egg is to your liking.
I like mine runny. If you don’t like it so runny, I recommend you wait until the egg is whiter than the one above and doesn’t jiggle when you shake the dish. This can also scale up as much as you want as long as your have enough sauce and a big enough pan!
Olivia’s secret is out! Thanks for tuning into the season 3 premiere of Scandal tonight! Keep watching on Thursdays at 10/9c. Share this one proudly. It’s from our friends at ABC.
7 Stages of fresh! local! cherries: 1. OMG cherries are in season. Must buy. 2. I’ve eaten so many and yet I haven’t made a dent. 3. Pie? No, too hot to bake. 4. Marachino cherries? No, wrong kind plus I’d gave to pit them all. 5. Contemplate getting a cherry pitter. 6. Maybe I will just eat them all fresh. 7. Fruit fly invasion.
Last night, Saturday Night Live poked fun at me for planning to cook with cicadas. In response to SNL’s reference to me, my friend Wendy Chan said “Everything you’re doing is super cool, which is what drives trends - and brings about changes!” I don’t think we will be starting a bug eating craze in America but I do think we can help people think about eating differently.
That said, for full disclosure, I ate nachos drenched in cheesy stuff at Denny’s the other day. And, I certainly know better. Eating bugs is exponentially healthier than anything on most fast food restaurant menus.
And here I was wondering what cicadas eat. Wrong question…
Happy cinco de mayo
