Serves 2 for lunch or 4 for breakfast
This originally appeared on our instagram feed a few weeks ago and we thought it would be great for our supporters to get the chance to cook it too.
Shakshuka has its origins in North Africa (although it’s popular all over the Middle East) and is now a staple brunch dish in trendy cafes and foodie hot spots. A tomato based dish, it also boasts bell peppers, which are an excellent source of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and dietary fibre. The dish is topped off with eggs and, in the Cardiologist’s Kitchen, we like to garnish it with a parsley and avocado paste to give you the excellent nutrients that both of these ingredients provide (potassium, magnesium, iron, Vitamin B-6 and the all important healthy fats). We’ve also introduced spinach as a great source of iron, Vitamin A and C, potassium and magnesium.
It’s delicious on its own but is usually served with a couple of slices of bread. If you’re tempted by the bread then try to stick to wholegrain versions which are high in fibre.
