Wholesome Shakshuka Recipe: Strive it!

I hadn’t heard of it both till I encountered it on a brunch menu in Mexico (over a yr in the past). What is that this mysterious “shakshuka”? I did know I used to be going to love it as a result of it has tomatoes and eggs (a terrific combo).

Shakshuka (additionally spelled shakshouka or chakchouka) is a giant pan of eggs poached in a sauce of tomatoes, peppers, onions, garlic, and olive oil. It might be spiced with cumin, paprika, and cayenne pepper. The recipe has been round in Mediterranean cultures for centuries.

Since I discovered it in Mexico – I used to be fairly confused to see that it was Mediterranean. However, if you consider it for a second – Mexican meals options tomatoes, peppers, eggs, cumin… It is sensible that it migrated to Mexico.

At any price, I fell in love and was thrilled to seek out recipes that confirmed my suspicion that shakshuka is wholesome. YES!

I added feta cheese to this shakshuka however you don’t need to. Should you depart it out, you should have virtually no factors for Blue or Purple WW program members. The one factor that counts within the recipe is the one tablespoon of olive oil.

I added the feta as a result of I believe it makes it extra tasty. Additionally, my children will eat something with cheese in it. It’s nonetheless a wholesome shakshuka with the feta as I don’t use an excessive amount of.

How do you make it? First, you make a thick tomato sauce. Then you definitely float some eggs on prime and ship the pan right into a preheated oven. The oven cooks the eggs and then you definately eat it with some good bread (or not).

You possibly can eat this wholesome shakshuka for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I prefer to make an additional one and eat all of it week. It’s scrumptious heated up within the microwave but it surely doesn’t freeze properly.

You could possibly freeze the sauce half earlier than you place within the feta and the eggs.

Have you ever tried a wholesome shakshuka? What did you consider it?
