There are a few ingredients in this Shakshuka with Ajvar recipe, but some are essential, and we don't recommend substituting them. You will find the whole recipe with written instructions below.
Olive oil - we love using olive oil, and you will find olive oil in authentic Shakshuka recipes too.
Peppers - red pepper is a delicious addition. Use your favorite.
Tomatoes - we used a large Grapolo tomato, but you can use whichever you like; quality is critical.
Ajvar - in the original recipe, you won't find Ajvar; however, in Ajvar or red pepper sauce, you can find ingredients like peppers, eggplants, and tomato paste, so this is a lovely addition with a fantastic kick in flavor.
