I had this in a restaurant today and it was absolutely delicious.... it had chickpeas, veg, tomatoes, in a yummy sauce with a bit of a kick, and lots of coriander.
Has anyone ever made this before and/or got a recipee???

Serves 4, but keeps very well.

2 red onions, cut into chunks
2 carrots, cut into chunks
2 garlic cloves, crushed
2 black olives, stoned
3 tablespoons sultanas
3 dried apricots, chopped
1 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon paprika
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
juice of one lemon
600ml vegetable stock
4 new potatoes, quartered
salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
2 courgettes, trimmed and chopped into 2.5cm chunks (or a little thinner if you prefer)
400g can chopped tomatoes
425g can chickpeas, drained
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
3 tablespoons chopped fresh coriander

Combine the onions, carrots, garlic, olives, sultanas, spices, lemon juice and 300ml of the stock in a heavy-based frying pan. Simmer briskly, covered, for 10 minutes, then uncover and simmer briskly for 4-5 minutes, until the liquid is almost gone and the vegetables and spices are frying in their own 'juices'.

Add the potatoes and some more stock. Cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes, until the potatoes are almost tender. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in the courgettes, a little more stock, and the tomatoes. Simmer for 7-10 minutes, or until all the vegetables are tender. Stir in the chickpeas and herbs, and heat through.

Serve with couscous.

Do you think that this could be frozen?

Yes, it can be frozen.

Oh, sorry - I forgot to add that I have wussy tastebuds and the recipe probably reflects that!

Glad you enjoyed it, though.
