You’ve probably seen this delicious brunch or breakfast dish on the gram by now, and although it looks intimidating, it’s surprisingly easy to make. We teamed up with Nikki Elisheva of My Sweet Belly to share her recipe for savory shakshuka with turmeric and pepper. “One of my favorite Middle Eastern dishes—it keeps you full for hours and can be ready to eat in under 30 minutes. If you have a bigger appetite or are serving the dish to more people, feel free to add an additional cup of spinach and to serve it with grains. You will get more nutrients and volume and stay fuller longer. For those following the keto diet, prepare a side of cauliflower rice to serve with the dish. Sauté the rice with the same spices you would with the dish.
As far as nutrients go—turmeric is an amazing spice to add to any dish. It is known for its anti-inflammatory properties, improving digestion and skin health. The body can better absorb the nutrients from turmeric when it’s paired with pepper,” Nikki shares. Learn the step-by-step instructions for the recipe below.
