Chickpea Shakshuka

Perfect for breakfast, brunch or any other time of the day, this vegetarian dish is filled with fragrant spices and fiber. We love making this recipe on weekend mornings when there’s a little more time to spend cooking up a hearty meal. Spice up your weight loss menu with our One-Pan Chickpea Shakshuka recipe!

Anything that starts with sautéed onions and peppers is sure to be delicious! That’s exactly how this savory dish begins. We follow this first step with the addition of seasonings: minced garlic, paprika, cumin and chili powder. Want to add extra smoky flavor? Smoked paprika is one of our favorite spices and can easily be swapped in place of regular paprika.

A can of whole peeled tomatoes and a bit of  black pepper completes the zesty sauce and turns this classic meal into a colorful creation. After some simmering, chickpeas find their way into the pan and take on the flavors of the other ingredients. Finally, we crack four eggs into the pan and throw it in the oven to finish cooking. A garnish of parsley and fresh cilantro add a touch of bright green to this unique meal.
