    Shakshuka is Arabic for "a mixture" or derived from a Hebrew verb "to shake". I usually make mine with onions, garlic, bell pepper, tomatoes, hot pepper, and a mix of cumin, chili, and paprika. Makes a nice sauce and you crack eggs into it

    The shawarma marinade Mark has on the site is worth negotiating highway traffic for.

    Thanks! I lived in Israel for a couple of years and traveled Egypt and Jordan. Always loved the food. I miss falafel...

    -Cumin
    -2 to 3 chopped garlic
    -Ground Coriander
    -Lemon Juice
    -Coconut Flour (120g)
    -Olive oil
    -Salt and Pepper

    1. Roast the potatoes whole until nice and tender, the remove them and leave to cool
    2. Peel them, and combine with cumin, coriander, lemon juice and coconut flour and mash to a smooth mix
    3. Stick them in the fridge for about an hour to firm up, or the freezer for half that, if you're particularly impatient.
    4. Remove, and then shape your mix into little balls.
    5. Place on an oiled tray, and whack them in the oven until their bases are golden brown. (Van Morrison rears his head again!)

    Sprinkle with sesame seeds before baking if feeling particularly whimsical.
    I think I love you! This is perfect. I am trying to eat more carbs.

    I've always been fond of the mideast delis/cafés in my area (if I can resist the kanafeh...). Haven't tried many recipes but goat cubes definitely make a savory and affordable stew. I usually start with a tomato/yogurt sauce then add okra and eggplant near the end.
