What You Need

  • 1 jar 500g Riki’s Shakshuka Sauce (Original or Spicy Harissa)
  • 4-6 Eggs (Tofu is delicious for a vegan option)
  • Frypan med-size (25cm) with lid

Optional Extras

  • Sliced chorizo sausage
  • Diced capsicum
  • Onion
  • Eggplant or tofu.

NOTE: Use same frypan to firstly fry these in a splash of oil, then proceed to cooking instructions.


  1. Start by adding any optional extras, such as onions, bell peppers, or spices, to a medium-heat pan. Cook them for approximately 3-5 minutes until they become tender and fragrant.
  2. Pour the Shakshuka sauce into the pan. Then, cover the pan and bring it to a boil. This will help the flavours blend together.
  3. After a few minutes, remove the lid and reduce the heat. Make four small holes in the sauce using a spoon. Carefully break the eggs into each of these holes, distributing them evenly across the sauce.
  4. Cook the Shakshuka uncovered on low heat for approximately 4-6 minutes, or until the eggs are cooked to your liking. If you prefer hard-boiled eggs, cover the pan again for the last few minutes of cooking.
  5. Serve the Shakshuka hot and enjoy its delicious flavours with bread or pita for dipping.
