    I’m not sure what I’m looking at, but it looks delicious. Very glad to see there’s space for a little food porn on your blog too..

      Hahaha! I love that my food can be classed as seductive, even if the colours have emerged eye-wateringly vivid…

      Ojja is a Tunisian dish that can be eaten at any meal and is tomato sauce-based (passata) with herbs and maybe chillies, but the best part is the egg broken into the middle and left to poach in the tomato juices. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Depending on the region and personal whims, it can also comprise cubed potato, beef sausage (merguez) or red peppers (as in this case). It is quick to make and oh-so-lovely with a crisp, warm baguette ๐Ÿ˜€

      Given that it can be eaten for breakfast, I would counter that it is the *perfect* way to start your morning! ๐Ÿ˜€

    Well I know how I’m going to be spending my Saturday morning. Could almost. almost be a Mexican dish (just need more chile and a bucket of lard). Hope to see some more technicolour food seduction again soon…..

      Well, it is supposed to comprise green chillies or harissa (a tomato, garlic and chilli paste), but I’m given myself a break from fiery meals ๐Ÿ™‚ But mercifully, no lard ๐Ÿ˜€
