Shakshuka (North African–Style Poached Eggs in Spicy Tomato Sauce) - Given its versatility, it's easy to see why. It's quick; it's simple; it's easy to scale up or down; it works for breakfast, brunch, lunch, dinner, or a midnight snack; and it's so primal that it barely needs a recipe.  Shakshuka is almost built for riffing.
