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 20 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)

Tasty, but I would class it more as a side dish than a main

Carley - Jul 16, 2018

A very lovely dish. I added extra vegetables and made enough for 4 people. It still has a depth of flavour. Served with flat bread.

Leanne - Jul 14, 2018

Was alright, but just like any casserole really

Jacco - Jul 10, 2018

Nice dish. I adder chicken to it. Also lamb would be nice. But recipe is a bit confusing. It says boil 500ml water. But then you only use 400 ml. 50 + 350 ml.

I added chorizo which went really well with the flavours.

Really tasty for a veggie dish

Kathryn - May 19, 2018

This was very tasty, but I felt it needed some meat to bulk it out. It went well with chicken, but took much longer than the 30 mins to be ready.

Emma - May 17, 2018

Quite tasty but way spicier than the heat rating would suggest

Laura - May 10, 2018


Maggie - May 04, 2018

Meatless Mondays favorite
