I’m a big fan of simple, healthy foods that only take a few minutes to cook (even better, they only use a pan). An egg dish that resembles a Hughes Rancheroz, baby eggs fit this description perfectly. My family loved the simplicity and taste of the dish.
It doesn’t hurt that it’s beautiful to look at!
What are roasted eggs?
Shakshoka eggs (also known as shakshoka or chukchukas) are a simple Israeli dish that includes a mixture of eggs and vegetables.
The origin of this dish is not clear, however, because it has its origin in Yemen, Tunisia, Morocco or Ottoman Turkey, according to various sources. Today it is a popular dish served in the Middle East and parts of North Africa and can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
Shakshoka means “shaken or blended” – that’s what the dish is.
How to Make Shiksuka
This egg dish is so easy to make! The basic steps are:
- Cook the onion, pepper, garlic, tomatoes, cayenne, pepper, salt, and pepper until the juices are cooked.
- Make 6 small holes in the mixture with the back of a spoon.
- Crack the eggs into indentations.
- Cover the skillet and cook for a few more minutes until the eggs are softly cooked.
Serve this delicious dish with bread or batter (my cereal-free flat bread recipe) and green salad.
I often have to pick my favorite recipes to fit my diet, but this dish is healthy enough to start with:
- Eggs Eggs contain healthy fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.
- Vegetables – Veggies are always a good choice for breakfast, as most of us need to eat more of them anyway. Vegetables contain vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that support the body’s functions.
- Spices – Herbs and spices can add flavor to a dish but also have benefits to the body. For example, cumin is used in folk medicine to help with digestion, blood sugar, and respiratory systems.
Lastly, I use real olive oil (filled with health benefits) in this dish to remove healthy ingredients.
