Weight Watchers Shakshouka (Eggs with a Twist) Recipe

Weight Watchers Shakshouka (Eggs with a Twist) Recipe. This is more than just your ordinary egg dish; it’s a satisfyingly hearty meal that’s low on calories yet big on flavor.

The shakshouka combines eggs, fresh vegetables like spinach, tomatoes, onion, and mushrooms, and a dash of cumin for a tantalizing twist. There’s also a bit of heat coming from hot pepper sauce to give this dish a kick!

When it comes to serving, this vibrant dish pairs wonderfully with a slice of whole-grain bread for breakfast or a side salad for a light lunch or dinner. Feel free to add bell peppers, zucchini, or any of your favorite veggies.

Don’t forget to use a large enough skillet to accommodate all the eggs without them touching. A handy tip for perfectly cooked eggs is to slide them gently into the skillet. It’s key to let them simmer on low heat until they set – patience is your best friend here!
