The sun might not be shining this morning but I’m still packing in the vitamin D thanks to this delicious mushroom shakshuka with vitamin D enriched mushrooms.
Vitamin D plays a key role in our immune function as well as maintaining healthy bones and teeth and even helping our hair grow.
Mushrooms naturally produce vitamin D following exposure to sunlight, which remains stable even when cooked. Research has found that eating just 8 mushrooms can give your RDI of vitamin D making them an amazing ingredient to add into your diet.
1 red onion, finely chopped
200g of vitamin D enriched mushrooms
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 tbsp of harissa paste

1 tsp of smoked paprika
2 garlic cloves, sliced
2 cans of chopped tomatoes
1 red pepper, sliced
100g of olives
