The Joy of Shakshuka


Yum ShakshukaJoy, who in the last 6 months, had been to Israel 3 times on business, was telling me how much she loved Israel, how she wanted to convert to Judaism and marry Matisyahu and how much she missed shakshuka. She was somewhat disappointed when I told her that Matisyahu was already married and had a baby (Miniyahu). Consequently, the least I could do was whip up a batch of Brakha’s (my Mom) awesome shakshuka. Of course, Joy then whipped out her uh…. chop sticks. Never seen that before …

In any case, if you want to make your own shakshuka, don’t forget to refer to the classic shakshuka recipe (and comments) brought to you by Jewlicious. One of the things you do in making shakshuka is you roast hot peppers. Joy noted that if you rinse your hands with orange juice (not water) after peeling the peppers, your eyes and nostrils won’t burn if you touch them. Then she went ahead and touched her eyes without cleaning “just for the heck of it.” Oh Joy …
