Asparagus Shakshuka is a hearty stewed egg dish in a chunky tomato sauce that is light, yet very filling when served with a crusty bread! Crisp veggies, soft egg yolks and a rich sauce make this the perfect weeknight meal or weekend brunch item.
It has been ridiculously hard for me to get started with stuff lately. Earlier in the year I realized I had taken on way too much with being a full time, stay-at-home mom to two little girls, working part time from home and trying to make this blog a priority. Oh, and my husband! Let’s not forget about him. Anyway, it was all just feeling like too much, so I took a step back from my presence on here. I didn’t want to, but it was the only place where I could give a little. I think I should’ve given myself a deadline to get back to it, though, because it’s been tough to fit cooking, pictures, editing, writing, etc. back into the daily swing of things.
I’ve decided I need this in my life, though, so don’t worry. I’m going to be making The Cheerful Kitchen a priority again. Because, honestly, when I’m not working on this blog, I’m not that cheerful. This makes me happy. It’s my passion and something I was meant to do.
The thing about Asparagus Shakshuka is that it’s a little dish with big, big flavor. The sauce cooks down to a soft and silky texture while the asparagus hold a little bit of crunchy bite to them, and there is something about a runny yolk that just feels decadent. Bright flavors of fresh thyme and scallions come through at the end, tying it all together. It’s seriously good.
There are a thousand ways to make Shakshuka, and they are all fabulous, but this version just feels so happy to me. Asparagus Shakshuka feels like spring and comfort all together in one dish. Just give it a try, and I know you’ll feel the same!
