Breakfast for dinner is a great way to start incorporating Meatless Mondays into your weekly menus. Who doesn’t love poached eggs? The Turkish spin on this dish changes up traditional poached eggs and keeps your flavours interesting. This meal is vegetarian and takes little time to make. Making meals at home doesn’t have to be time consuming to be delicious. You can prepare the dukkah spice the day before to save time.
