Lean Green Shakshuka


You know me by now. I love a savoury breakfast! Anything with eggs and veggies and Im golden. This recipe really doesnt disappoint. This is my perfect breakfast for a Saturday morning, a pot of coffee, the radio on. Perfect. It has agood protein hit, masses of phytochemicals such as carotenoids, and micronutrients like vitamin C and magnesium. What's not to love.
