This is a popular North-African/Middle eastern dish where eggs are baked in a spicy sauce with tomatoes, peppers and onions and served with a slice of bread to mop up all the tasty sauce. This hip dish is so versatile that it’s great at breakfast (as done in Israel), brunch, lunch and dinner (as is done in diners up the east coast of the U.S). This “Ottolenghi-style” dish is taking the foodie world by storm and we think it’s here to stay.

Our 30 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Heat a wide frying pan with a lid over medium heat (with no oil) and tip in the Cumin & Caraway Mix. Let them toast for about 20-30 secs. As soon as they start to pop, add 1 tbsp of oil and all of the onion. Fry the onion for 3 mins until it starts to soften.

  • 2.

    Turn the heat up and add the peppers. Let them cook for 3-4 mins, stirring occasionally. Add the Shakshouka Spices with a splash of water and mix well.

  • 3.

    Add the tomatoes and the Spicy Tomato Paste and 60ml water. Crush down the tomatoes and stir well. If you're using parsley, add most of it now, saving a few leaves for garnish. Bring it to a gentle boil, then reduce the heat to a simmer, cover with a lid and cook for 5 mins.

  • 4.

    The Shakshouka should now be roughly the consistency of a chunky pasta sauce. Use your spatula to make 4 shallow wells in the sauce and crack an egg into each space. It's okay if the sauce mixes with the egg white, this is good as it will help it to cook more quickly. Cover it with a lid and let the eggs bake in the sauce for 10 mins over a medium heat, or until the whites are just cooked and the yolks are still a little runny.

  • 5.

    To serve, spoon 2 eggs along with some sauce into each bowl and top with a few parsley leaves and a handful of crumbled feta cheese (if having). Serve with your bread to mop up all the sauce!

A lot easier than I thought baking eggs would be, but I dropped a star as it was a little bit more heat than I thought it would be

Laura - Oct 15, 2018

Awful, too dry and not tasty

Mags - Oct 11, 2018

I loved this!

Sarah - Oct 06, 2018

Not spicy enough. Flavour combinations weren’t complimentary and it felt like a pasta sauce without pasta. Didn’t enjoy, won’t re-order.

Mike - Oct 06, 2018

There seamed to be a bitter aftertaste.

Darren - Oct 05, 2018

Just not my cup of tea

Abbigail - Sep 20, 2018

Normally love shakshouka but this was wet and tasteless. First Simply Cook recipe we have been disappointed with.

jane - Sep 19, 2018

Gorgeous but not quite a fan of fennel yet x

Farrah - Sep 19, 2018

It’s a good hearty brunch recipe that yielded 3-4 servings.

Lee - Sep 19, 2018

Not a bad dish just not as full of flavour as previous recipes

Lyndsay - Sep 16, 2018

Needs to simmer fr longer than stated but very tasty easy dish

neal - Sep 14, 2018

Underwhelming. Just needed more seasoning. We could taste the packet and at a push the cumin but otherwise like fresh veggies steamed and mixed with a boiled egg... Picture looked a lot nicer

Tannya - Sep 10, 2018

It was fine, but lacked flavor. I probably won’t order it again.

Laura - Sep 10, 2018

Husband wasn't keen

Luke - Sep 06, 2018

Lovely dish but doesn’t make a lot. Would personally need two boxes

Paul - Sep 05, 2018

Nice but don't overcook the eggs, 5mins will do.

Paul - Sep 05, 2018

Nice, I'd only give the eggs 5mins, as a bit hard at 7mins

Penny - Sep 05, 2018

So easy and utterly gorgeous

Elly May - Sep 05, 2018

Nice enough but slightly watery.

Diane - Sep 04, 2018

Lovelly

Stephanie - Sep 04, 2018

Had this for breakfast! Yes, really. It's great to set you up for the day

Jo - Sep 03, 2018

Bit bland

Chris - Sep 02, 2018

Used pastry cutters to keep the egg from spreading as found it impossible to create a well.

martin - Sep 01, 2018

Not my normal sort of food but a pleasant and tasty dish. Enjoyable change from meat or chicken
