Today I’m sharing with you one of my go-to quick and easy dinners: Shakshuka (a.k.a. Eggs in Purgatory). Just imagine yourself dipping a crusty slice of whole wheat sourdough bread into a slightly runny yolk surrounded by a spicy tomato sauce. And all it takes is 15-20 minutes – seriously a perfect weeknight meal!
Afraid of eggs? Don’t be! Eggs are a cheap, healthy protein source, boasting 7 grams of protein, 5 grams of healthy fat, as well as close to 10% of your daily needs for numerous vitamins and minerals including Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D per egg – all for just about 70 calories! Plus, current research has shown that the cholesterol in eggs does NOT lead to elevated blood cholesterol levels. Embrace the egg people!
To spice this recipe, I used a pre-made harissa seasoning, which is great to have around for creating dishes with a Middle Eastern flare. However, if you don’t have or can’t find harissa seasoning you can make your own! Check out this recipe over at Just a Pinch.
Usually when I tell Bry we are having eggs for dinner he cringes, picturing a fried egg on top of toast (usually with some avocado as well) – apparently this is not considered “dinner” food in guy world. However, this recipe has received Bry’s approval for dinner as he feels it is both filling and flavorful enough – success!
