Have you ever tried shakshuka? If not, prepare to discover your new favorite breakfast! It's super filling, satisfying, and healthy, and it's packed with tons of flavor. The first time I ever tried it was on a trip to Israel years ago and I was instantly hooked. Once I realized how easy it is to make it at home, it pretty much became a staple in my weekend routine! It's basically a super flavorful tomato sauce that you can throw a bunch of veggies and spices into, then crack eggs straight into the sauce and let them cook right in there, and once they're done to your liking, you top the whole thing with fresh herbs and avocado (well avocado isn't always in traditional shakshuka, but in my opinion, what's a brunch dish without avo!?). I'd also seriously recommend some crusty toast to dip into the pan and soak up all of the yummy goodness and flavors!
Drool, right!? Here's how to make it!
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 small red bell pepper, chopped
1 cup cauliflower rice
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 tsp paprika
1/2 tsp cumin
1 14.5-ounce can or jar of fire-roasted diced tomatoes
salt and pepper
1/2 avocado, sliced
garnish with chopped chives
So excited for you to try this one out! Feel free to make it your own by adding any of your favorite veggies to the sauce. You can also top it with a sprinkle of feta and any other herbs you like (parsley or cilantro would work perfectly, too!).
