Simon’s breakfast or anytime Shakshuka

Nourish Champion Simon Gale has shared the recipe for this nutritious breakfast. He says: ‘Start your day with this epic, hearty breakfast dish from Israel. It’s something of an institution there and shared in a large pot straight to the table by many families. I love the fiery mix of roasted peppers, sweet cherry tomatoes, beans, garlic and authentic spices, cumin, caraway and smoky paprika, all topped off with a layer of baked eggs. Serve with crispy toasted bread.
