Moroccan Eggs | Shakshouka

I love making these Moroccan eggs for breakfast when we have guests – you do not have to watch over them constantly and they never fail to please. I use my tagine to make them and have discovered that the concept for this dish originated in Tunisia. The cumin is key to the flavour of the tomatoes.
