  • A Middle Eastern classic, a bit like ratatouille with those signature spices
  • Great as a main, but delicious as a side dish to share, too
  • It's delicious as it is (and vegan), but to serve with the traditional eggs, just crack two into it 10 mins before it's done and return to the oven

Try It With:

  • Traditionally this is served with eggs, but they don’t freeze well. Add your own, breaking two into the dish 15 mins before it’s done
  • Fresh parsley sprinkled on top
  • Try serving as a side dish, as you might with ratatouille

*This recipe is made with ingredients most vegans would approve of and is part of our growing range of vegan-friendly dishes. Although we can't claim official vegan certification (as we don't have a designated area in the COOK Kitchen), we know plenty of vegans who would happily eat it.

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

  • We hand prepare and slice some fresh red and green peppers, which are flash fried in a little oil and garlic.
  • Next we add diced onion, salt, cumin seeds, caraway seeds, chilli flakes, smoked paprika and cracked black pepper. Once the onions are soft we add the tomato puree and cook out for a few minutes before adding chopped tomatoes.
  • The sauce is then simmered before being finished with parsley and coriander. Then in goes chickpeas, chargrilled aubergine, and marinated cauliflower.

Cooking Instructions

At our kitchen, we prepare food by hand using the same ingredients and techniques you would at home. We then freeze our meals at -35°C so it tastes freshly made when you cook it at home (no nasty additives or preservatives required). Most of our food can be heated from frozen (sometimes in minutes in your microwave). Check the instructions below.

These cooking instructions are only a guide. Your appliance may have a personality of its own (or a different power rating). Please adjust accordingly.

Oven:

Preheat oven. Remove sleeve and pierce film lid. Place on a baking tray and cook in the centre of the oven. Shakshuka is traditionally topped with an egg. They freeze badly, but it's a simple, tasty addition if you fancy adding your own. Ten minutes before it's done just peel off the film (careful, it's hot!), stir, create a small well in the top, and crack an egg into it, before putting it back into the oven.
