Shakshuka (keto)

Shakshuka (keto)

Shakshuka is the most flavoursome & fiery breakfast you’ll ever make! Sounds super fancy but is actually really simple to make. It’s a great way to spice up your eggs in the morning (pun intended)

This dish is keto-friendly if you are into that kind of thing or even if you aren’t, you can carb it up with some grilled bread on the side 😉

Packed with flavour, spice and protein! Perfect meal to kick off the day.

If you want to go all out with this one, try grilling some bread on a griddle pan. ( or if you’re stuck, just use a regular frying pan ) Brush a slice of bread on each side with some olive oil and sea salt and add to a hot frying/griddle pan. Then you just grill on each side for 1-2 minutes. This is perfect for dipping into your Shakshuka 🙂

  • frying pan

  • 1 tbsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • half stock cube ( mixed with 150ml water )

  • Add the tinned tomatoes/passata and stir in. Then add the 150ml stock and stir
  • Turn to a high heat and cook the sauce until it thickens slightly. You should be able to make a small hole in the mixture to crack the eggs
  • Make 4 small holes in the mix and carefully crack in one egg at a time
  • Turn to a low heat and cover with a lid until the whites of the egg are cooked and firm and the yolk is still slightly soft (around 3 minutes)
