Green Shakshuka  (Recipe)


✅ 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

✅ 1/2 medium onion, diced

✅ 4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

✅ 1 zucchini, grated

✅ 9 ounces brussels sprouts, shaved or finely sliced

✅ 1 tsp cumin

✅ 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
✅ 1/2 tsp salt

✅ 1/4 tsp pepper

✅ 2 cups packed baby spinach

✅ 5 large eggs

✅ 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

✅ 1 large avocado, for garnish


1️⃣ Heat olive oil in a saute pan on medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until the onion becomes translucent. Add the garlic and cook an additional minute.

2️⃣ Add the shaved brussels sprouts and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. When the brussels sprouts have softened, add the zucchini and spices and stir for another minute.

3️⃣ Add the baby spinach and stir until it just starts to wilt, then turn the heat to low.

4️⃣ Flatten the mixture with a spatula and create 5 small wells, then crack the eggs into each well.

5️⃣ Cook until the eggs are done to your liking. You can also add a lid to steam and cook the eggs faster.

6️⃣ Sprinkle the fresh cilantro on top and garnish with sliced avocado.
