Healthy Baked Eggs in Tomato Sauce

Bring Greens (and Even More Protein) to Spicy Baked Eggs

If you're on the hunt for a new way to enjoy eggs, try this play on the traditional Middle Eastern dish shakshuka that satisfies as a special Spring breakfast or post-workout dinner. With more than 20 grams of protein and nearly 40 percent of your recommended fiber for the day, this 350-calorie meal consists of perfectly poached eggs swimming in a fragrant and spicy tomato-sauce bath. To amp things up in the nutrition department, garbanzo beans are added for even more protein and Swiss chard adds vitamin A, vitamin C, and iron.
