Hands down, breakfast is my absolute favorite meal of the day. To me, there is nothing better than starting the day with a delicious protein-packed smoothie, a jar of dairy-free overnight oats, or my one of my favorites, an authentic Turkish breakfast.
There are so many delicious options to choose from nowadays without resorting to that familiar bowl of Cheerios and milk or a piece of toasted white bread smothered with butter and sugary jam. I’ll admit, they’re tasty but not exactly healthy.
Recently, my friend Vivi taught me to make her recipe for Israeli shakshouka and my breakfast love affair found a whole new romance. This traditional poached egg dish is a staple in Israeli and Arab cuisines, enjoyed for both breakfast and evening meals. Though some Arab cultures include potatoes, beans, meat, and a variety of spices, in Israel, many recipes are strictly vegetarian. Vivi’s shakshouka is packed full of fresh vegetables, tomatoes, and eggs, and best of all, this one-pot meal is easy to make and delicious. For those who are gluten-free and dairy-free, this dish is perfect for you, too!
American chef and food writer, Ruth Reichl, put it best, “Pull up a chair. Take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious.” Here’s to a healthy lifestyle! – Lisa
