This is a classic Israeli dish made with basic ingredients but the finished product is very impressive. A great recipe which works well for brunch or dinner.
The basic recipe needs onions, tomatoes, garlic, eggs, fresh herbs & seasonings. Based on the ingredients you have on hand, you can play around with the other optional stuff.
I like to add sundried tomatoes for added saltiness and omit the feta.
If you want an extra nutrition boost, add a handful of kale, spinach or rainbow chard.
You can enjoy this with some crusty bread, pita or just by itself.
