During our trip to Spain, we were blown away by their scrumptious and flavorful cuisine. Besides the rich cultural and historical tourist attractions, the highlight of our trip definitely was the gastronomical delights throughout different region’s of Spain. Our family loves exploring different Tapas places in America too. I love recreating some of those unforgettable tasty dishes at home.
Flamenco Eggs is a beautiful dish that is pleasing to the eyes and taste buds. The mini sweet peppers add a distinctive color to this dish. I like to sauté and bake it in my Lodge Cast Iron skillet for extra iron boost and evenly cooking. This sweet peppery dish with lightly set eggs is delicious, healthy and doesn’t required too much prep work or too many ingredients.
Colorful food elevates your mood along too. Life is beautiful gift and we should make it as much colorful and interesting as possible. Even the mundane tasks don’t feel such if you add little more life or color to it. On a gloomy , dark snowy days, delight your family and yourself with such simple creations. Trust me , it’s very worth it.
Simple and effective, this dish will delight all your senses. Egg Shakshouka is a similar version but I am not adding tomatoes in this this one. tomatoes tend to make this dish bit watery. I prefer the crunch of the vegetables and lemon juice gives enough tart . Let’s get going with making this recipe!
