This simple one-pot meal is bursting with flavours of the Middle-East. Our authentic blend of Ras el Hanout is this party's host with ginger, cardamom, cinnamon, nutmeg and allspice and many more ingredients coming into play. These lay down the sweetness and sharpness to this flavoursome stew while the roasted tomato paste and a bold mushroom stock add depth to this flavour party. There's even more reason to celebrate, it's only a tiny 250 calories per person with a very healthy bunch of tasty winter vegetables.

Fiona - Jan 21, 2019

A real winner with the family!

Pamela - Jan 21, 2019

Lovely spice to this stew. Makes more than 2 servings and that was great the other half took it to work too.

Mary-Anne - Jan 21, 2019

AMAZING! A definite favourite. So much flavour and huge portions. We had with basmati rice. Would be great slow cooked

Caragh - Jan 20, 2019

Might have been my cooking but found it quite watery first time. Second reheat the water was absorbed and the stew had got spicier and was much better. Delicious flavours, lovely winter warmer.

Leah - Jan 19, 2019

Not usually my choice but loved it, so tasty!

Samantha - Jan 19, 2019

Really lovely, bit too spicy kids so next time I would put less spice in the veg initially. I actually put some cooked chicken in there as well so it made it a full one pot meal for us. Next time might try chick peas.

Anna - Jan 17, 2019

Absolutely delicious! I used kale instead of spinach and sweet potatoes instead of potatoes and it tasted great.

Chloe - Jan 17, 2019

Gorgeous stew and very easy to make! Used two small slow cooker pots to cook it as it makes quite a lot, but really filling and lovely and warm and sweet!

Jeni - Jan 16, 2019

Jane - Jan 14, 2019

Omg delicious and very very filling

Sabina - Jan 14, 2019

The recipe includes a small butternut squash. Not knowing the exact weight, I have put all in and it was way too much, but the flavours were nice. Overall it’s a nice dish.

Rachael - Jan 12, 2019

So tasty

Charlotte - Jan 09, 2019

Love this dish. Really flavourful but does have a heat kick to it. You can add meat of you wish and it's nice with some added chicken.

Rebecca - Jan 08, 2019

Bland. I wouldn’t choose this recipe again

Allan - Jan 08, 2019

Chose this as my wife is vegetarian and I myself not too keen on vegetarian dishes , this was outstanding, both of us absolutely loved it!

Michael - Jan 07, 2019

I was unsure while cooking it, thinking it may be a bit watery but oh my days it was beautiful.

Helen - Jan 07, 2019

Delicious, I was a bit worried that the sauce would be too thin but it thickened up nicely in the oven. Will definitely make again.
