Shakshuka is an ancient Middle Eastern dish found in most of the Middle East. It’s made mainly of cooked tomatoes, capsicum or seasonal vegetables, chilli and spices, and it’s traditionally served with eggs.

Hi, my name is Gus and I’m the creator of this beloved dish of mine called Shakshuka Meal in a Jar. When I was five, I knew Shakshuka was the most magnificently delicious meal ever. From my mum & aunties, I learned that food feeds the body, mind, & culture. Even the simplest middle eastern dish is prepared with love and respect for the ingredients & the people who eat it. But never has this magnificent dish been bottled in a jar and made available for customer pantries.

The best part is, it’s prepared at lighting speed!
Simply heat a generous splash of oil in a pan, add the Shakshuka jar content and bring to simmer, crack 2 eggs per person on top, cover and let it simmer on low. And in just about 5 minutes, Walla! You’ll be savouring a heartwarming gourmet dish that is perfect for breakfast, lunch and dinner all year round in the comfort of your own home. Best described as Meal in A Jar, Ready in 5 minutes!

Suggested Serving Ideas

Traditional: Just before serving, add crumbled feta and garnish with fresh coriander, and devour with your favourite bread to soak up all the scrumptious goodness of the sauce.

Elevated: Heat a generous splash of oil in a pan, add sliced chorizo and let it soften for a minute or so then follow same traditional cooking instructions as above.

Vegan Option: Follow traditional cooking instructions but replace eggs with a can of drained chickpeas or tofu instead. Top it with your favourite vegan cheese.

Heavenly Spicy Pasta Sauce: cook your favorite pasta in salted water until al dente, drain and set aside. Heat a generous splash of oil in a pan, add the Shakshuka sauce and bring to simmer. Add drained pasta to the shakshuka sauce and stir it thoroughly through. Transfer to a suitable size serving platter, garnish with freshly chopped coriander / parsley and crumbled fetal. Drissel extra virgin olive oil and devour.

Enjoy or “sah-teen” as we say in Arabic.
