IBS-Friendly Egg Shakshuka
Hey fellow IBS sufferers! I want to share with you another IBS-friendly recipe that I find really delicious and great for anytime of the day. I have created my own version of Shakshuka, which is a popular dish amongst many groups in the Middle East, and even North Africa. It is simply an egg dish where the eggs are poached in tomato sauce and a mixture of seasonings and vegetables. I have made my own rendition of this dish that is IBS-friendly, and hopefully some of you will be willing to give it a try and tell me what you think. Here it is…
- 4 eggs
- 1 (14 oz.) can of 100% pure crushed tomatoes or whole canned cherry tomatoes
- About a ¼ cup of water
- Salt to taste
- Pepper to taste
- ¼ tsp of turmeric
- ¼ tsp of dried oregano
- 4-5 leaves of fresh basil
- ¼ tsp of paprika
- ¼ tsp. of dried parsley
- Optional: parmesan cheese topping
- In a large skillet, on medium high heat, spray with coconut oil and add the can of tomatoes.
- Add the water, stir, and wait for it to simmer.
- Once the sauce starts to bubble, add in the salt, pepper, turmeric, oregano, and paprika. Then stir again.
- Create little pockets and add the eggs. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Bring the heat down to medium-low and cover for about 5-8 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked. (5 minutes if you like your eggs runny and 8 minutes if you like your eggs fully cooked).
- Garnish with dried parsley, shredded parmesan cheese and fresh basil.
- Serve with toast, or any side of your choosing, and enjoy!
