Easy Shakshuka Recipe

Shakshuka is a well known turkish dish consisting of poached eggs in a rich tomato sauce spiced with paprika! Usually served with crusty bread or pita and can be served at any time of the day breakfast/brunch/supper!

Its super healthy and easy to make with several variations out there but i'm going to go with the original recipe!

YIELD: 2 servings

TOTAL TIME: 20 mins


  • Tomatoes - 3 large (roughly chopped)

  • Onion- 1 large (roughly chopped)

  • Garlic - 4-5 cloves (finely chopped)

  • Paprika- 1 tsp

  • Salt to taste

  • Harissa sauce- 1 tbsp (Click here to buy)

  • Coriander - 1/4th cup finely chopped

  • Olives (sliced)- as required

  • Olive Oil- as required

  • Pepper -1/2 tsp(optional)


  1. Heat a tablespoon or two of olive oil in a deep pan on medium heat.

  2. Place the chopped onion in the pan and let it cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic, paprika, and a sprinkle of salt. Let it cook a further 5 minutes, stirring regularly.

  3. Add harissa sauce (made by blending 4 dried red chillis, 1 tsp cumin seeds, 1 tsp coriander seeds, 3-4 cloves of garlic, salt and extra virgin olive oil) or you can simply buy it ! i would recommend the Bechef original Tunisian Harissa paste which goes with everything from meat to vegetables, couscous, roasted potatoes, scrambled eggs, as a dip for bread … the list is truly endless. It can spice up any meal and is a must have for all those hot sauce lovers ;) CLICK HERE TO BUY

  4. Add the tomatoes, stir once again and let it simmer for approximately 10 minutes, stirring regularly till the tomatoes are cooked.

  5. With the back of a spoon make some indentations or wells in the chunky tomato sauce big enough to house each egg. Crack each egg into the wells you've created.

  6. Let the shakshuka simmer for 7-10 minutes.

  7. Before serving, sprinkle coriander over the top and season with a little salt and pepper.

  8. Enjoy! :)
