  • 850ml vegetable stock

  • 1/2 tsp turmeric

  • 1 tin chopped tomato

  • 1 red onion peeled and chopped

  • 2 courgette chopped

  • 2 sticks celery chopped

  • 2 tsp harissa paste

  • 1 tsp cumin seeds

  • 3 cloves garlic to taste

  • 1 tin chickpeas drained and rinsed

  • 1 pinch brown sugar to taste

  • 8 new potatoes


  1. Gently fry the cumin seeds, garlic, red onion, chilli, cinnamon, harissa paste and turmeric in a little olive oil, until soft and fragrant.
  2. Add the carrots, potatoes, courgettes and fry off a little then put lid on to soften.
  3. Add the veg stock, tinned tomatoes, chickpeas, seasoning and sugar/honey.
  4. Bring to the boil then turn down to a gentle boil with lid on for at least 20 minutes.
  5. Add the fresh coriander and adjust the seasoning. When the vegetables are all soft, turn it off and leave to cool slightly.
  6. Serve with couscous and a little chopped fresh coriander sprinkled on top.

Handy Hint

You can replace any of the veg with others if you prefer - these were just the ones that I happened to have in and I feel they suit the recipe well. Also, to make it more authentically moroccan you could add dried apricots or prunes.

    AAAGH sorry I forgot to include 3 bay leaves! Put them in when you add the stock etc.

    I made this recipe up myself but it's gone down a storm with my DH (who really loves his moroccan food) and family. Even my Dad who usually is violently opposed to vegetarian food enjoyed it and didn't miss the meat. The chickpeas make this a really balanced healthy meal. Perfect for autumn/winter nights and quick to prepare when you get in from work.
