Thanks for joining Sarah and me for Meatless Monday today. I am beyond excited to share my new foodie obsession with you today. You may have seen the Shakshuka (pronounced “shack-shoe-ka”) craze all over Insta lately. Yes, it really is as delicious as it looks! I’ve been working on perfecting my recipe for the past few weeks and I am happy to share this quick and easy Shakshuka with Egg Whites with you all today. This post is sponsored by AllWhites® but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
Quick and Easy Shakshuka with AllWhites®
First of all, what is Shakshuka? An easy and super protein packed dish comprised of eggs cooked in a spicy tomato based sauce. Filled with Mediterranean spices, this hearty and healthy dish is a winner. I’ve used AllWhites® in my recipe as they are cholesterol free, easy and loaded with protein. They have half the calories of traditional eggs.
After a day of running, biking or strength training, I’ve come to appreciate the importance of refueling with protein rich foods. Using AllWhites® allows me to get over 20 grams of protein in my Quick and Easy Shakshuka. I work hard everyday and I want to make sure I fuel my body with enough protein.
How much protein do you really need? Every “body” has different needs. Check out this protein calculator here to determine your individual needs. I was surprised by how much protein my body needs. Allwhites® are a fantastic vegetarian protein source for me and easy to add into so many recipes. See here for recipe ideas.
How easy is this Shakshuka to make? Crazy easy! Tomatoes, eggplant and zucchini are simmered with smoked paprika and Harissa. AllWhites® are then added into this yummy skillet and cooked to perfection. My whole house smelled amazing!
Eat it right out of the skillet or my favorite way-with a big piece of delicious crusty bread. Trust me, you’ve got to make this one. I’ve had it three times this week.
