Easy Paleo Shakshuka

Easy Paleo Shakshuka

A simple, veggie-packed take on traditional Shakshuka.

Simply put, shakshuka is Middle Eastern inspired dish of eggs cooked in tomato sauce and other veggies. I threw in some different easy veggies and paired mine with potatoes instead of pita or toast for a paleo version!

Recipe

Serves 1

Ingredients

  • 1/2 red bell pepper 
  • 3-4 baby carrots, chopped (or 1 regular carrot) 
  • 1/4 jalapeño, chopped (optional) 
  • 1/4 cup jarred tomato sauce 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 small red potato 
  • Salt, pepper, paprika, garlic, + onion powder to taste 
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil, divided 
  • Microgreens for topping (optional) 

1. Cook potatoes in 1/2 tbsp oil oil before starting the shakuka, or cook along side in a separate pan at the same time. Season with salt + pepper. 
2. Begin cooking shakuka by sautéing peppers and carrots in 1/2 tbsp avocado oil over medium heat for 3 minutes. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, garlic + onion powder. 
3. Reduce heat slightly, then stir in tomato sauce. 
4. Push veggies aside to form two “nests” for the eggs. Crack eggs into pan and cover pan with a lid. 
5. Cook until egg whites are completely set. Serve with potatoes (or toast for non-paleo option). Top with microgreens (optional)
