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.

Our 30 minute recipe
Heat the oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Heat a large casserole dish or a deep roasting pan over medium heat on the hob. Put enough oil in the pan to cover the entire base. Once the oil is hot, fry the onion for 2 mins. Bring 500ml of water to the boil in a kettle.
Add the potatoes and butternut squash to the onions and stir well. Add more oil if the vegetables start sticking to the pan. Then add the Ras el Hanout to the pan stirring so all vegetables are fully coated in the spices. Add a splash (50ml) of water and then let it cook on a low heat for 5 mins.
Add the Tomato Paste and stir it in thoroughly. Add the Mushroom Stock and the 350ml of boiled water to the dish. Stir until mixed through.
Add the tomatoes and dried cranberries to the dish (if using). Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and simmer for 5 mins until the potatoes are semi-cooked. Stir through the spinach, then pop the dish in the oven uncovered for 15 mins until the sauce has thickened and the vegetables are soft.
Remove from the oven and serve with a dollop of yoghurt on the side and a squeeze of lemon (if using)

Lovely veg stew, just add chicken tikka or meatballs if you want meat.

Sauce was nice just too much vegetables. Could do with some meat.

Justine - Sep 19, 2018
Good but I won't take it again
Jane - Sep 19, 2018
Just cooked this as my first dish & it was delicious. All the veg came from allotment. I left out cranberries, and at first thought it was a little watery, but had a flatbread with it to soak it up. Yum! Just enough spices to be warming in the winter. Will definitely be having this again.
Jane - Sep 19, 2018
Stir fried some turkey added just before the spinach was delicious
Andrew - Sep 19, 2018
Lovely meal but needed some sort of side with it. I cooked pork loin
Heather - Sep 19, 2018
Good flavours, although a little watery, wants something to thicken up stew.
David - Sep 18, 2018
Very nice even the kids devoured it added some chicken to it though
Laura - Sep 17, 2018
Too spicy for me, fun to cook though
Jack - Sep 17, 2018
Ok. Not a fav though
Donna - Sep 16, 2018
Perfect for Autumn, very warming, aromatic and slightly fruity with the cranberries. Easy to cook but took slightly longer than the recipe said. Loved it!
Donna - Sep 16, 2018
Was a little too peppery for my liking but partner enjoyed it.
Hafsah - Sep 15, 2018
Great first dish to try the simply cook process. It was very easy to cook as it all went into 1 pot, the only thing that was a little tedious was peeling and cutting up the butternut squash which was something I've never done before so thankyou for introducing me and my 3year old to some new vegetables. He finished his plate which is a great accomplishment!!!
Andrew - Sep 15, 2018
Different, full of flavour, perfect for a rainy evening.
Lauren - Sep 14, 2018

We added chicken kids over it & loved the left overs with fresh bread the day after
Jason - Sep 14, 2018
Who knew such basic ingredients could be so full of flavour!
Denise - Sep 14, 2018
OK, not as good as some dishes!
Francesca - Sep 13, 2018
Really good veggie dish. Used sweet potatoes instead of butternut squash. Cooked for longer than recipe advised.
Anne - Sep 13, 2018
Was lovely, can get away with putting more potato or veg in as there was lots of sauce.
Stephen - Sep 13, 2018
Loved it. I left it overnight in the fridge to further enhance the flavours, really tasty.
Nicola - Sep 12, 2018
yum yum yum
Sandra - Sep 12, 2018
Delicious. Cooked this for myself and a guest and cannot wait to prepare it for my husband I know he will love it.
Gillian - Sep 11, 2018
Underwhelming! Not very flavoured! More of a side dish. Served with garlic mash pots to try to make a meal.
Wendy - Sep 11, 2018
Tasty but felt like it was missing something so I put pomegranate seeds in to give it a pop of flavour. Spinach a little overcooked and it looked a strange colour but wasn't a bad dish.
Samuel - Sep 11, 2018
