Why I Love This Recipe
This dish of North African origin is a great method of poaching your eggs in an elevated way and getting more protein and vitamins with them. It's handy when you want to spoil yourself or impress your friends with a homemade brunch.
A cup of tomato sauce contains a quarter of your recommended daily intake of vitamin A and fulfills half of your daily need for vitamin C. Tomatoes are also naturally rich in the antioxidant lycopene, which protects your body’s tissues from damage and free radicals, and it can help reduce heart disease.
Parsley is a delicious source of flavonoids and antioxidants, folate, vitamin K, vitamin C, and vitamin A.
Red kidney beans provide healthy carbohydrates, protein, and fiber without a lot of calories. They are a rich source of folate, iron, and phosphorus, with moderate amounts of thiamin, copper, magnesium, and zinc.
