Tofu in Purgatory (Shakshuka)

Tofu in Purgatory is a brilliant brunch dish however you could consume it for lunch or dinner too. it's miles best with a few warm buttered toast (test out my notable easy vegan butter recipe), clean crusty bread or baguette. For dinner it's far lovely with a crisp salad and a few bread to mop up the fiery juice.

Tofu in Purgatory (Shakshuka)


  • 1 796 ml can diced tomatoes
  • Salt & pepper to taste I used 1 teaspoon salt & ½ teaspoon pepper
  • 1 block of unpressed medium tofu cut into rounds (around 350g although this doesn't have to be exact) see recipe note
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil (optional)
  • 4 large cloves of garlic
  • 2 teaspoons dried herbs see recipe note
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried chili flakes use less if you prefer less heat
  • 1 teaspoon sugar optional but helps to bring out the tomato flavour
  • Indian Black Salt (Kala Namak) optional


  1. warm the olive oil in a skillet and cook dinner the garlic over medium heat till just beginning to show a touch brown. (use a drop of water in place of the oil to keep the recipe oil-free).
  2. upload the tomatoes, salt, pepper, chili flakes, herbs and non-compulsory sugar.
  3. Simmer over a medium heat for five minutes then upload the tofu rounds.
  4. flip down the warmth to medium-low and simmer for 15 mins until the sauce is thickening up a little and the tofu is soft and heated via.
  5. Sprinkle the tofu with a little Indian Black Salt simply before serving in case you would like an eggy flavour.
  6. Serve with toast, crusty bread or baguette to mop up the juice!
