A lovely lunch or meal that warms the heart...

Vegan Shakshuka: A spicy tomato-pepper sauce with eggplant, black beans and coconut yogurt.

The first Vegan Shakshuka I ate was a few weeks ago when I was in York, England in a tent called Humpit. I was really amazed at how wonderfully creamy this dish is. Such vegan comfort food!

The original recipe is with eggs. I put black beans in the Shakshuka for some extra healthy protein!


Serves 4

Ingredients:

  • 2 cloves of garlic

  • 1 red onion

  • olive oil for baking

  • 2 red paprika (peppers)

  • 400 grams of canned tomatoes

  • 70 gram (small can) tomato puree

  • 200 ml of water

  • aubergine, in cubes

  • canned black beans (can of 400 grams), drained

  • salt / pepper to taste

  • 1 tsp ground coriander

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper

  • 1 tsp ginger powder

  • 4 wholemeal pita bread

  • fresh coriander, finely chopped

  • coconut yogurt


  1. Heat some olive oil in a frying pan. Chop the red onion and press the garlic. Fry this in the pan over low heat for about 10 minutes.
  2. Add the pepper and spices and fry for another 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, the tomato puree and the water.
  3. Let this simmer on low heat and then puree everything with a hand blender.
  4. Now add the black beans and the eggplant. Cook everything on low heat for about 15 minutes with the lid on the pan.
  5. Serve with a spoon of coconut yogurt, fresh coriander and dug in with a pita bread.
