devilishly good meatless monday eggs in purgatory

This is a devilishly fun dish to start October’s meatless Monday’s off right! Believed to be of Tunisian decent, Shakshouka, or Eggs in Purgatory, traditionally uses Harissa, a paste made from peppers and spices, but mine utilizes smoky cumin and jarred roasted red peppers which are probably sitting in your pantry right now! Serve family style or in individual dishes for a simple weeknight dinner!

A hellish good meal!

Oh pasta, how I love you so. Set a big bowl in front of me and I just can’t resist. While spaghetti with marinara is a go-to in our house, sometimes you just need a change. This recipe is just as quick and easy and packs a ton of flavor with only four ingredients…seriously! Here’s my tasty version of Four Ingredient Spaghetti all Carbonara.

Don’t Forget to Poach Your Protein! (Meatless Monday Vegetable Hash)

"Cooking Light" Meatless Monday Inspiration

“Cooking Light” Meatless Monday Inspiration

So another Monday was upon us and while I love my meatless meals, post-baby I’m trying to make sure I add protein as often as possible. A 6-week old may not walk or talk, but you sure still need a lot of energy to balance out those sleepless nights! On average, men need 56 grams while women need 46 grams of protein daily and eggs can be a great, meatless source. At 6 grams per egg, adding two to a dinner is an easy addition to boost the intake.

If you have the hook-up, may I suggest local eggs, like the ones I get from the chickens that my mom added to the family last year. Dave, Cody, Pancakes, and the rest of the lot provide the freshest, most vibrant, and nutritious eggs around. No chicken coups in your family? It’s a great time of year to spend a Saturday perusing your local farmer’s market, just make sure to give the eggs a good wash before you crack them! Anyway, back to cooking…

I saw this recipe in one of my favorite magazine subscriptions, Cooking Light. It was super easy and even had the meat-lover in my house singing his wife’s praises! As an added boost, next time I might throw in a can of beans, red or cannellini, just to add a non-meat, non-dairy source of more protein. Here’s the recipe for Vegetable Hash with Poached Eggs.
