This Healthy Breakfast Recipe: Sweet Potato Shakshuka

Vegetarian | Paleo | Gluten-Free | Grain-Free | Dairy-Free | Sugar-Free 

 

If you're a breakfast lover and foodie then this recipe is for you! Or if you're looking for healthy breakfast ideas that taste good but don't take a lot of time (and maybe you're sick of the same old oatmeal, eggs or smoothie mix) then this recipe is even more for you! 

Now I love my scrambled eggs and omelettes but after awhile you can only take so many eggs before you start to wander "what else can I eat for a healthy breakfast?" This Shakshuka recipe is your answer!

Shakshuka is a Middle Eastern dish that's not only healthy but also incredibly tasty. The best part of this easy recipe is that once you get the hang of it, it only takes a few minutes to prepare and makes tons of servings so you feel full. 

Try this Sweet Potato Shakshuka as a weekend healthy brunch or healthy breakfast meal or use it as part of a healthy meal plan. This is a vegetarian recipe but you can also make it a vegan recipe by cutting out the eggs - I promise it will still taste delicious! 

Makes 4 big servings 
Cooking Time: 20 min

  

Main Ingredients 

  • 1 large sweet potato cut into cubes (at least 1/2 cups worth)
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped bite-sized
  • 1/2 green bell pepper chopped bite-sized
  • 1/2 red onion chopped bite-sized
  • 8 tomatoes cubed or diced
  • 4 to 6 eggs (up to you!)
  • 3 tbsp of tomato paste (45g)
  •   

    Flavour Ingredients 

  • 3 cloves garlic chopped finely
  • 1 tsp each of: chilli powder, cumin, salt and pepper (about 2.5g each)
  •  

    Equipment & Extras

  • Large skillet (ideally cast iron if you have it but not essential) + lid
  • 1 spoonful of coconut or cooking oil for frying 
  • 1 handful fresh basil chopped (for garnish)
  • 3 spring onions chopped (for garnish) 
  •   

    Steps

    Heat your cooking oil in skillet over medium high heat until it sizzles, then reduce heat to medium (medium low if using cast iron skillet.) Add in: sweet potato, onion and green pepper and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.

    Next, stir in tomatoes, red pepper and flavour seasonings. Cover the skillet and simmer for 10 minutes. 

    Finally, uncover and stir in tomato paste. Follow by making egg-size holes in the mixture with a spoon. Drop your eggs into each of these holes. Leave to cook until whites form but it's still slightly runny in middle (about 5 to 8 minutes.)

    Add your garnish to the shakshuka if you have it and serve directly from skillet (just watch that heat!)
