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.

Disappointingly tasteless but not terrible

Beautiful combination of flavours, we both loved it.

David - Dec 10, 2019

Sorry, the result was, I guess, tasty for a true veggie, but failed on me and most of it ended up in the bin.

Dave - Dec 10, 2019

A bit bitter. The Ras el Hanout I buy from Sainsbury’s tastes better than the one they include in this spice box. I will make it again but using my recipe and Ras el Hanout from Sainsbury’s

Kathleen - Dec 07, 2019

Loved it

Kathleen - Dec 07, 2019

Delicious. I pre-steamed the new potatoes to make sure they would be cooked, and used the cavalo nero kale from the garden. I used frozen spinach and finished the cooking on the hob. May use the oven next time. The flavours are so good. I’ll be ordering this again.

Maureen - Dec 07, 2019

I prefer my own cooking to this version of vegetarian food, sorry, no disrespect.

Urgh this is not nice and unfortunately had mushroom stock as I’m allergic to mushrooms I swapped it with beef stock. Still didn’t help the flavour.

Clive - Nov 25, 2019

Absolutely stunning flavours.

DAVID - Nov 24, 2019

Very tasty, liked it a lot, i added almonds and red wine, though the spinach just died, I don't get why you would put a whole bag of spinach in?

Gracia - Nov 23, 2019

The ras el hanout was pretty bland, not the richness I expected from what should have been a delicious spicy mix. Disappointing.
