Iranian Vegetable Stew4.1/5 (BASED ON 3167 reviews)
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.

Found this very very bland. Not really any flavour at all!
Melanie - Mar 17, 2019
I order this almost every month, it's my absolute favourite
Catherine - Mar 17, 2019
Lovely! Was a bit worried it might be bland but definitely not. Served with saffron rice for a bit of a Persian feast.
Wendy - Mar 17, 2019
Very enjoyable but butternut and potatoes were nowhere near cooked. We had to return to the pot and cook for a further 20 minutes. Could do with being par boiled.
Natalie - Mar 16, 2019
One of my favourite dishes
Barry - Mar 15, 2019
Very tasty and straightforward to make.
Kevin - Mar 14, 2019
This is absolutely excellent. So rich and full of flavour. I always use the optional extras as they really do add something special to the dish. In this case, the dried cranberriesr eally add a wonderful dimension to the flavour. I have cooked this several times and, as you would expect, allowing this to stew for longer only added to the richness of the flavour. That being said, in the 30 minutes set aside for prep of this dish, it is absolutely fantastic, flavoursome and easy.

megan - Mar 12, 2019
Honestly gorgeous ???? I did it all on the hob and added a tbsp of flour to thicken
Andy - Mar 12, 2019
Delicious! So easy to cook. Having cooked it once I’ll definitely try again, easy to see how you could add different vegetables.
Glen - Mar 11, 2019
Absolutely delicious ! Needed to cook for longer than the recipe said to make sure the potatoes were soft but once done it was beautiful!
Leanna - Mar 10, 2019
After reading reviews , I replaced white potato with sweet and added red lentils. I also cooked it mainly in the oven after frying some of the ingredients on the hob . Really nice !
Susan - Mar 10, 2019
Absolutely wonderful and packed with taste
Jess - Mar 10, 2019
Incredibly flavoursome. Cooked up some lambs heart with it to make it stretch to 4 servings. I added the yoghurt, cranberries and a drizzle of lemon as suggested and I can only say "WOW".
Sandy - Mar 10, 2019
Really strange taste
Sandy - Mar 10, 2019

Peter - Mar 09, 2019
Pauline - Mar 07, 2019
Tasty, but go easy on the water otherwise it will be more like a soup.
Karen - Mar 07, 2019
Katy - Mar 06, 2019
So tasty and filling. Super low effort too.
Vanessa - Mar 05, 2019
Good healthy veggie option. Instructions say boil a full kettle of water - you actually only need 350mls
William - Mar 05, 2019
Delightful mix of aromatic spices and even better the following day.
Jamie - Mar 05, 2019
Super Tasty, best so far

Sandra - Mar 05, 2019
Bit dull; wouldn’t cook it again
Sandra - Mar 05, 2019
Wasn’t our favourite; bit dull
Athol - Mar 04, 2019
Better if recipe games be weight of squash to be added instead of saying “one small”
Elizabeth - Mar 04, 2019
Kerry - Mar 03, 2019
Very nice very filling.
Saba - Mar 03, 2019
I liked this, the flavours worked very well together and it was filling and healthy....for me it didn't have the wow factor that lots of the other dishes do though, so don't think I'd order it again.
Sadie - Mar 02, 2019
Delicious, lovely flavour. Made Tah Dig (Persian rice) to go with it. Would order again.
Anne - Mar 02, 2019
Nice tasty stew, slightly hot but not too hot. It made loads. Definitely too much liquid in it though. If I have it again I’ll add less water and cook in the pan for longer.
Rebecca - Mar 01, 2019
I am aghast how delicious this was.
Camilla - Mar 01, 2019
Nice but a bit bland, maybe better as a side with something else.
Allan - Mar 01, 2019
OK. Bit watery and bland. Added my own chilli to make it have a bit more pep
David - Feb 28, 2019
It was actually very nice. More of a side dish maybe.
Lorraine - Feb 28, 2019
A bit too bland maybe would have been better if I had added the cranberries
Jakki - Feb 28, 2019
Not for me.
Amanda - Feb 28, 2019
A little too soft for my liking
Greig - Feb 27, 2019
Spicy and aromatic
