Spicy Lentil Shakshuka With Garlicky Yogurt

Active time: 35 minutes Total time: 1 hour

Shakshuka, a Middle Eastern baked egg dish, is an excellent staple to have in your healthy recipe toolbox. It’s incredibly versatile and works for breakfast, lunch or dinner. In this version, we’ve bulked up the classic tomato sauce with French green lentils, tender kale and a blend of complex spices. When making shakshuka, you want to use room-temperature eggs for the best results. Cold eggs can lower the temperature of your sauce and make your eggs cook unevenly.

The lentils and kale in this dish contribute 22% of your daily iron, which is a nutrient that vegetarians sometimes struggle to consume. Incorporating recipes like this one into your diet can help you reach your iron goals.
