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

  • 1.

    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.

  • 2.

    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.

  • 3.

    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.

  • 4.

    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.

  • 5.

    Remove from the oven and serve with a dollop of yoghurt on the side and a squeeze of lemon (if using)

A little too spicy for my taste, but still delicious and easy to cook.

Jeni - Nov 06, 2018

Not keen, had a bitter/funny aftertaste

Caroline - Nov 05, 2018

Next time I would maybe explore different vegetables to give it some more texture (which probably makes it less authentic but hey)

The flavours are great! I added jackfruit and some aubergine and has with some quinoa and bread. So so good

Rachel - Oct 22, 2018

Stunning dish. The yoghurt really works. Serve with crusty or naan bread to soak up the gorgeous juices. Only criticism is it takes much longer in oven. Closer to 40

Dena - Oct 20, 2018

Unless you are vegetarian try adding some chicken. And crusty bread is good too!

This is much more tastier than it sounds! Give it a try!

Eleanor - Oct 20, 2018

Really nice flavours. Not as spicy as I thought it would be which was good for me. Agree that it took longer in the oven, about 30mins

Anna - Oct 19, 2018

Delicious & easy to prepare!

Stephen - Oct 19, 2018

I was sceptical about this as i normally find stews boring but this was stunning. Full of unexpected flavour and had a nice kick.
