Now where is this year going? And how did this term slip by so quickly! I don’t know about you, but for us this last week or two of term is a bit fraught. Possibly the cupboards are empty, the kids are tired and motivation is low. But there’s no need to hang up the healthy food towel. Before you dial a takeaway, make the most of your pantry stash. This shakshouska, is way cool and is more compiling than cooking. Served with a bit of bread, it keeps everyone in my house pretty happy.
Pantry tuna shakshouka
Younger kids might like a version of this with just a few spoonfuls of tomato, an egg and scattered ham.
800g crushed tomatoes
180g tuna in oil (with chilli, too, if your family like it)
4 spring onions (I’ve usually got some hiding in the bottom of the crisper drawer)
1/3 cup roasted capsicums (also tip in a bit of the flavoured oil)
Sprinkling of capers (if you like them)
To serve: parsley (from the garden), salt, pepper, sourdough (for dipping).
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Place your individual dishes or ramekins on a baking tray (to make handling easier).
Divide the ingredients between your dishes, in quantities that will suit each diner. Finally, scoop a bit of a dent in the mix and quickly crack in an egg.
Bake for 15-25 minutes until the eggs are cooked to your liking.
