Slow Cooker Shakshuka | Slimming Friendly Breakfast Recipe | Slow Cooker

A delicious Slimming World friendly breakfast that can be cooked overnight in the slow cooker, ready for you in the morning. 

A Shakshuka is a Middle Eastern and North African dish made of a hearty, spiced tomato and pepper sauce topped with a poached egg and feta. I first had one out at a restaurant, and wanted to make one myself every since.

There is something so wonderful about dipping bread into the runny egg with the smoky warm sauce.

This recipe is even easier, as you can through all of the ingredients into the slow cooker, leave it and wait! You can add pre-poached eggs, or poach them in the sauce itself.

Tips for poaching eggs

I know a lot of people often say they struggle with poached eggs. For this recipe you can either prepoach the eggs to add to your plate, or add them to poach in the sauce itself.

I recommend getting eggs that are as fresh as possible for this dish. If you are pre-poaching, then get the water super hot and add in some white wine vinegar. Crack the eggs into a small dish or cup to then pour into the pan of boiling water.

You could also just make a well in the sauce and crack the eggs straight in, and leave them for a few minutes to poach in the sauce.

Watch the egg crack:
