Classic shakshuka is heavy on tomatoes and peppers and can be hard on those prone to heart burn. This is a lighter, greener, version, that is fresh, and digestively friendly. 



  1. Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for 2-3 minutes, or until it becomes translucent. Add garlic and cook an additional minute.
  2. Add shaved brussels sprouts and cook for 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently. When brussels sprouts have softened, add zucchini and spices and stir for another minute.
  3. Add baby spinach and stir until it just starts to wilt, then turn heat to low.
  4. Flatten mixture with a spatula and create 5 small wells, then crack one egg into each well.
  5. Cook until eggs are done to your liking. You can also add a lid to steam and cook eggs faster.
  6. Sprinkle fresh cilantro on top and garnish with sliced avocado.
