  • 1Bring a pot of water to the boil and add a solid palmful of salt.
  • 2Take the leaves off from the hard stems and wash. Blanch for 15 seconds in the boiling water, remove and place in a bowl. Once the spinach has cooled slightly try to remove as much liquid as you can. Place on a chopping board and roughly chop.

  • 4In the meantime, add the oil in a pan on medium heat. Add the onion and fry until translucent, approx. 5 minutes.
  • 5Add the ginger, garlic, coriander powder and cumin seeds and fry for another minute.
  • 6Add the vegetable stock and the spinach and stir everything together seasoning along the way.
  • 7Once the mixture has reduced and thickened, take off the heat. Dice the tofu and place the spinach mixture.
  • 8Serve the shakshuka and top with vegan sour cream, coriander and serve with slices of bread.
