This North African dish is also a very popular Israeli dish.  It is essentially eggs poached in a tangy tomatoe sauce.  It is great eaten with a crusty or garlic bread to mop up the delicious sauce.  It's commonly eaten for breakfast, lunch or dinner, served in a sizzling cast iron skillet. If having a "cheat" meal serve in a pita or on a crispy baguette.

Rich in vitamins and minerals, it is also concentrated in health-promoting phytonutrients such as carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, and zeaxanthin) and flavonoids to provide you with powerful antioxidant protection.

As the days turn colder there is just something so simple and satisfying about split pea soup.  I  love that the split pea soup gets really thick and substantial, very economical too.  You get a "lotta food" for "little bucks"! Please note that legumes (lentils and pea's) are only permissable during phase 3 of Atkins.

slow cooked soft beef shin with root vegetables and ale

Entertaining in a regular group makes it so  much easier for the host or hostess.  It really takes the load off. Last Saturday night was exactly one of these occasions.  We had two couples over, the one crowd brought all the lovely fancy cheeses, mediterranean dips and crackers to enjoy with pre dinner drinks. The other couple brought the apple crumble and cream for dessert. I was happy to serve the main course.  This soft beef shin dish was a hit!
