White Bean & Vegetable Shakshuka

This one-pan dish of beans, vegetables and eggs makes a tasty and nutritious breakfast, lunch or dinner. We’ve used cannellini beans but you could use butter beans or kidney beans. Beans/legumes help to support your gut health, pack an awesome vegetable protein punch and are super cheap. Try throwing in whatever vegetables you have on hand and add cayenne pepper and chilli flakes if you prefer it spicy. Serve straight out of the pan with lemon or lime wedges and sourdough toast.
