It May Look Fancy, but This Protein-Packed Egg Dish Takes All of 15 Minutes

It May Look Fancy, but This Protein-Packed Egg Dish Takes All of 15 Minutes

It’s hard to beat eggs when it comes to breakfast – it might not seem like it, but there is a lot of power hiding in those shells! Besides being stacked with protein, eggs have also been shown to fight belly fat. Add chickpeas to the mix, and you’re looking at a breakfast that will power you straight to lunch.

Chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans) are also full of good-for-you protein but have the added benefit of filling fiber, meaning you’ll stay fuller longer. Chickpeas also have the support of science! A study showed that individuals who ate chickpeas made healthier food choices throughout the day compared to those that skipped the Mediterranean favorite.

Don’t let appearances fool you! Despite how elegant this dish may look, it’s ridiculously easy to prepare. Everything goes into one dish and then straight into the oven. It’s also a dish that you can get creative with by changing up the veggies or spices you include or baking it with a tomato or pesto sauce.

Baked Eggs With Spiced Chickpeas and Spinach

From What’s Cooking Good Looking

Ingredients

  1. 1 14-15 ounce can of chickpeas, rinsed
  2. Handful of spinach, coarsely chopped
  3. 1 teaspoon of sumac (optional)
  4. 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  5. 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  6. Black pepper, to taste
  7. 1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil
  8. 2 large eggs
  1. Optional toppings:
  2. Additional sumac
  3. Sliced scallions
  4. Sliced avocado
  5. Spoonful of harissa, pesto, or another sauce of your choice

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Place the chickpeas and spinach into a small baking dish; add the sumac (if using), paprika, salt, pepper, and olive oil. Place in the oven for five minutes.
  3. Remove and carefully crack the two eggs over the chickpeas and return to the oven. Bake for another five minutes. Check the dish, and if the eggs are not cooked enough, return for another 2-3 minutes. You want the whites to be cooked but the yolks to be a little runny.
  4. Serve right away and top with any additional toppings you like.

These Brownies Are Almost Healthy Enough to Get You a Hall Pass on the Whole30

Whether you’re eating a diet that’s vegan, gluten-free, sugar-free, Paleo, or Whole30, this brownie recipe has got you covered. That’s because it’s made with only three common ingredients. You can’t get any simpler than that!

You probably already have everything you need to make these brownies, except maybe the patience to wait for them to cook! These come together in 25 minutes flat. Just mix the batter real quick and bake.

They’re 140 calories and offer 3.1 grams of protein and 2.1 grams of fiber. They’re also lower in carbs and sugar as compared to a typical brownie recipe.

This simple dessert offers that fudgy texture and chocolaty flavor you crave, but you can feel good knowing there’s no refined flour or sugar added. We do apologize for introducing you to this recipe because from now on, you’ll be waiting for your bananas to ripen just so you can make a batch!
