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.

Delicious. I did put beef in it too.

Helen - Nov 05, 2019

Super tasty but didn’t take 30 minutes after having to preheat the oven, and the potatoes definitely took longer than estimated

Anne-Katrin - Nov 03, 2019

Super healthy dish! Nice with some plain yoghurt and rice. Our kids however preferred the delicious Simply Cook curries.

colin - Nov 03, 2019

Wow, I probably never would have looked at this in a recipe book but seeing how nice and also simple to cook I thought I would try. Amazing flavour and If my veggie friends come over I have another dish I can serve . Also I think i could substitute or just add things like Cauliflower to add my own thing.

Lovely flavour, rather ‘thin’ stew but ate with a spoon to ladle up the delicious , if watery sauce.

Sarah - Oct 13, 2019


Sophie - Oct 12, 2019

Added rice as i didn't think it made enough to serve 4.

Gosh this is just offensive to Iranians. Ras el hanout? Wrong country! Butternut squash? Hardly.

It had a lot more flavour and interest than expected even as a vegetarian dish. Would definitely do it again.

Ronni - Oct 06, 2019

Hearty. I added a can of tomatoes for bulk but was lush. Slightly spiced, but not massively. Added broccoli too.
