Traditional Tunisian shakshuka is comprised of eggs that are gently poached in a simmering, savory concoction of tomatoes, bell peppers, onions, garlic, and some warm spices. And it is tasty! But all those nightshades (tomatoes, peppers, spices) sometimes don’t make me feel the best so we’re going green for this breakfast shakshuka!
As a holistic nutritionist, I don’t like to compromise taste, or health so rather than not being able to eat one of my favorite breakfast meals, I have instead switched it up for something that suits me and my lifestyle. Simple, it’s all about making smart swaps so you can still enjoy your favorite foods.
Instead of tomatoes, I pair power greens like spinach and arugula with my favorite homemade chimichurri sauce to achieve the perfect balance of salty, sweet, green goodness! The parsley, capers, red wine vinegar, oregano, and garlic in the chimichurri bring the greens and poached eggs together in the most delicious way.
Serve this green shakshuka with some gluten-free bread or as is, and you’re set!
