I just had the BEST dinner! I am really excited because as most of you know, I am eating healthy right now and this recipe is just that…HEALTHY! I promise you, it doesn’t taste healthy… it tastes like a cheat meal. That means you can get in a healthy, low carb, low fat, low calorie meal and it tastes delicious. As an added bonus, it’s a One Pot Meal! Woohoo for less dishes. 😉

It’s called Shakruka and you’re going to love it. It’s FULL of flavor (which I was surprised about because I am not putting much salt in anything right now) but it is still full of yumminess. You can eat this for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner! It also makes for a perfect brunch dish…I just has mine for dinner and it filled me up. Since I am cutting back on carbs, I chose not to eat bread or toast with it which I thought I’d miss but I didn’t miss it at all. Enjoy!

Shakshuka Egg Dish

Shakshuka Egg

Ingredients:

  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 cup chopped onions

  • 6 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 6 eggs
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste (I used Pink Salt and used only a tiny bit)
  • Parsley to taste (I just sprinkle it all over and actually use dried parsley but fresh is great too)

Directions:

  1. Pour the olive oil into the bottom of a flat large pan (12 inches is great)
  2. Saute your onions and bell pepper until the turn a little brown but mostly just transparent
  3. Add the Garlic and saute for another minute or two to get the flavors out
  4. Add the seasonings and mix until combined
  5. Add the cans of tomatoes (add the juice and all)
  6. Simmer this mixture for about 10 minutes until it thickens a little
  7. Then, use your spoon to make a little pocket in your sauce for your egg, crack and egg into each pocket (6 total) shakshuka dish
  8. Cover and let simmer for another 10 minutes or so but keep an eye an it and turn the heat off once your eggs get close to the consistency you want (they will continue to cook in the sauce when you pull off). I like mine almost cooked but a little runny.
  9. Enjoy!

Aren’t these just adorable?! I love making this next snack for the kiddos (and with them) because it’s a great way for them to eat a healthy snack. These Snowmen snacks are made of eggs, carrots and pretzels so like I said, it’s very healthy. Have fun making these with the kiddos and enjoy!

Boiled Egg Snowmen

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 Boiled Jumbo Eggs
  • 6 Boiled Medium Eggs
  • 2 Carrots
  • Peppercorns
  • Pretzel Sticks
  • Green onion stems 2

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Slice off a small section from top and bottom of each egg to allow them to stand and stack neatly. 3
  2. If you are going to serve soon, you can use pretzel sticks to join each piece and they will be completely edible. If they need to sit for a while, the pretzels will become to soggy, so you will have to use wooden skewers.
  3. Even if you are using pretzels, you will need to pierce the egg and carrot before pushing pretzels through.
  4. Push a pretzel stick down into large egg to make body and place smaller egg on top. 4
  5. Peel carrots.
  6. Slice the thick end of carrot into six 1/8″ slices to use as hat brims.
  7. Slice middle of carrot (or smaller carrot) into six 3/4-1″ slices for top of hat.
  8. Use skewer to “pre-drill” hole in carrots to allow pretzel to connect them with remainder of stick extending below brim.
  9. Push assembled hat down onto head. 5
  10. Take the small end of a carrot (about 1/2″) and cut lengthwise into six sections to use as noses.
  11. Using a toothpick, pierce “face” egg in the middle and insert the nose.
  12. Pierce for the two eyes and four spots to make a mouth and press in peppercorns. 6
  13. Pierce the “body” egg three spots to make buttons and press in peppercorns.
  14. Break a pretzel in half and insert a piece in each side of the body to make arms.
  15. You can optionally use green onion stems to make a hat band and scarf.
  16. Split the green tube and open it up.
  17. Gently scrape the blade along the inside of the opened stem to remove stiffness.
  18. Trim the softened piece to make scarf or hatband and wrap in place.

As most of you know, I love making Crock Pot recipes and this stew/soup is super easy since it’s made in the Crock Pot. I love making this on chill, snowy, rainy days. It’s such a good comfort food and is actually pretty good for you. You could make this with our Grilled Cheese Rollups (they pair up perfectly and I love dipping them in the soup).
