Cook the 5-minute eggs
Start the shakshuka
- Peel and coarsely chop enough onion to measure ¾ cup [1½ cups].
- Scrape off any seeds from the roasted red peppers; coarsely chop any large pieces.
Make the lemon-tahini sauce and falafel batter
- Coarsely chop the cilantro; finely chop enough cilantro to measure 1 tablespoon [2 TBL]. Set aside the remaining cilantro for garnish.
In a medium bowl, combine the falafel blend, finely chopped cilantro, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lemon-tahini sauce, and ⅓ cup [⅔ cup] water and season generously with salt and pepper. Using a fork or whisk, mix until well combined; if needed, add more water, 1 teaspoon at a time, until the mixture resembles thick pancake batter.
Cook the “Scotch” eggs
- On a plate or shallow bowl, spread the chickpea flour in an even layer.
Add the egg to the pan and cook, turning frequently, until dark brown and heated through, 2 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate and season with salt and pepper. Repeat to coat and cook the remaining eggs.
Finish the shakshuka
