Very nice with garlic bread - I left out the aubergine because I hate it and doubled up on chickpeas instead. I also added some chilli flakes and paprika to give it a bit of a kick. I discovered *after* I put the veggies in the oven that I din't have any tinned tomatoes, but roasting some cherry and vine tomatoes with the veg and adding tomato puree on the hob seemed to work fine.

Top tip - the fresh coriander really makes this dish so don't skimp on it!

(Sorry - website messes up umlouted characters. Romertopf is as close as I can get).

Anyone tried this in a Römertopf or similar? I think that'll really bring out the flavours.
-Cheers, Andy.

I roasted cherry tomatoes and used red onions and also used tinned tomatoes with herbs in, it was very good and would adapt with other ingredients to suit, maybe try red kidney beans instead of chick peas.

This just didn't work for me - very bland

Lovely and easy! Served with couscous for meatfree Monday, but think I'll make a big batch as a side dish for the next barbecue as well!

served this last night with veggie sausages, my picky eldest son was well impressed. I might try putting some stock in with the tomatoes next time

Hmm going to try this during the week, minus the chickpeas though will have it with pork chops too... yummy!

Very simple and tasty - it was a hit with pork chops!

My husband was surprised at how easy this was to make and it was really popular. I have passed on the recipe to colleagues at work who are carnivores and it has received universal praise.

Really tasty way of getting your 5 a day

Made this as the veggie option for a party - there was nothing left of it at the end of the night, lovely!!

I found this rather bland so added some Tabasco and Worcester sauce to add more flavour.

Didn't do much for me I'm afraid. I found the chick peas clawing in the mouth so I'd probably make this dish once more and try it without them.

Wonderful recipe. I left out the aubergine and added mushrooms and a 2 tsp of curry paste. Worth a try!

I've just realised i've added mustard seeds instead of coriander seeds - hope this will be alright!

Forgot to rate!

We really enjoyed this and the flavours were even better the next day - so I shall have a go at making this either the evening before or a good few hours in advance and warm it up. I also cut feta cheese into it at the end and next time I'll add a red onion in as well. Using different herbs and spices would adapt it to most peoples liking. Very easy too - chop up roughly and throw in the pan!

Lovely recipe and vey flexible. Substituted aubergine with butternut squash which worked very well and served with grated cheese on top. Popped under the grill until golden and bubbling.
