Get The Energy To Start Your Day With This Egg Recipe

Shakshuka, a delicious breakfast dish, is a staple in Israel and for good reason. Creamy eggs melt in your mouth and heighten the flavours of fresh herbs, sweet onions and red pepper.  I crave this dish regularly and find myself needing to make it at least once a week.


Red peppers, herbs, and onions are all loaded with vitamins and will give you the energy you need to start off your morning.  Onions and cilantro are super powerful in detoxifying your body of heavy metals.


Prep: 10 min
Cook time: 15-20 min
Serves 2

 

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 Medium onion sliced thinly
1 Sweet red pepper sliced thinly
1 Tbsp ground coriander
A pinch of cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp sea salt
2 eggs (or 4 if you are really hungry)
1 Tomato diced
1/4 cup chopped herbs (cilantro, parsley, basil)
2 lemon wedges

 

Directions:

Heat olive oil in a frying pan on medium.  Once hot, add onions, red pepper, salt, coriander, and cayenne. Fry and stir for 10 minutes. Make a space in the onion/red pepper mix for the eggs. Crack the eggs into the frying pan. Add the tomato and chopped herbs. Let cook 5 minutes covered or 10 minutes uncovered until egg whites are solid.  To serve, divide onions/peppers and eggs between 2 plates. Squeeze lemon juice over the entire meal and enjoy.
