Stirred veggies and eggs shakshuka style
Stirred veggies and eggs shakshuka style, wholesome, simple and easy to make lunch. You can use any veggies you have left, ideally combining different colours and textures to make sure you have a plate full of diverse nutrients. For example, for this one I used sweet potatoes, broccoli and leek. Red peppers, potatoes and onions are a good one too. Or kale, spinach and mushrooms, the combinations are limited only by your imagination 😉
Serves: 4. Total time: 45 minutes.
INGREDIENTS (organic and in order of use)
3-4 tablespoons of Olive Oil
1 Leek (both green and white part)
2-3 Garlic cloves
1 big Sweet potato
1 small Broccoli head
2-3 pinches of Unrefined Salt
1 teaspoon of Thyme
1 level tablespoon of Paprika
1/2 teaspoon of ground Cumin
2 tablespoons of Tomato paste
100g de Feta (optional)
- Wash and cut the leek in thin rings. Warm 3-4 tablespoons of olive oil in a big casserole pan. Add 2-3 crushed garlic cloves and stir them for a minute. Add the leek rings and keep cooking covered at medium heat for about 5 minutes.
- Peel and dice (1,5 x 1,5cm) the sweet potato and add it to the pan together with 2-3 pinches of unrefined salt, 1 teaspoon of thyme, 1 level tablespoon of paprika, 1/2 teaspoon of ground cumin. Combine everything together and let cook covered for about 10-15 minutes, to soften the potato (but not completely cook). Add a bit of water if the potato starts to stick to the pan.
- Detail the broccoli into small florets and add it to the potato together with the tomato paste. Combine everything and let cook still covered for about 10-15 minutes more.
- When broccoli gets a bit softened, stir everything well together and sprinkle with crumbled feta all over. You can also skip the cheese, it will still be delicious.
- Make four wells in the veggies mix and pour one egg in each little well. Let cook on a medium heat until the whites are cooked and yolks done to your liking.
- When my veggies and eggs shakshuka style are ready I like to sprinkle them with sesame seeds before serving but that is optional too 😉
