Are you forever looking for a protein-packed, Instagram-worthy breakfast that doesn’t bore you? Cue shakshuka, a spicy tomato-and-egg dish that’s a favorite of recipe bloggers, Instagram food stars and hip brunch spots around the world.
To make the gorgeous Tunisian dish, you’ll start by whipping up a rich tomato sauce spiked with garlic, cumin, paprika and cayenne. Lucky for you and your brunch guests, tomatoes are naturally rich in lycopene, a powerful antioxidant that protects your body’s tissues from damage.
Next come the eggs, which you’ll nestle in the thick tomato sauce and poach until the whites are firm and the yolks are still runny. The protein from the eggs will keep you full and energized throughout the day, and you can always sop up the yolk-and-tomato mixture with pita or sourdough.
If carbs aren’t your thing, make the breakfast bowl of your dreams by spooning the eggs and sauce over Swiss chard. The leafy green is a great source of vitamin A and iron, and the way the chard wilts down and melds with the sauce is irresistible. At only 260 calories, you might as well make shakshuka for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
One shakshuka bowl provides 14 grams of protein, 8.88 grams of total fat and 27.83 grams of total carbohydrates.
