Chickpeas, tomatoes and sweet potatoes, the shakshuka in Okinawa’s style

Shakshuka is a typical recipe of Tunisia and Morocco but its popularity is growing all over the world with all the vegan and plant based alternatives. The original recipe is prepared with tomato, peppers, spices and eggs, today we propose instead a variant with chickpeas and, in perfect Okinawa’s style, the Japanese island famous for the long lifespan of its inhabitants, sweet potatoes. The result is a unique dish, nutrient-rich and healthy, complete thanks to the combination of carbs and proteins and precious source of antioxidants, vitamins and mineral salts to support the immune system and to fight the free radicals. Health can be obtained also through the diet, according to the centenaries in Okinawa, which we talked about recently in a post.
