I added Harissa paste with some bacon bits and chilli flakes and it was really scrummy - would try next time with chorizo which I think would be even better

5 Stars! Great Recipe, I added fried smoked tofu at the end of the roasting and made it a main dish.
Could someone tell me; what is Harissa, please?

Its a Tunisian hot pepper paste, it's really nice, can buy it at most supermarkets

This was a really tasty side dish that made a lovely change from our usual steamed veg day in day out! However, I did tweak the recipe quite a lot because it was quite bland. I added 2 tsp of smoked paprika, some cayenne pepper and dried basil. Served it with baked cod and wholegrain couscous which all went really well together. Will definitely be making this as a side dish again :)

This recipe was fantastic. It will be a staple in this house. I served it with rice, and my partner loved it as well.

I like to mix Harissa in too! Great dinner and fun to tweak the recipe around. Sometimes I add a bit of extra water and dump some couscous into the dish for the last 10 minutes of cooking.

I made this as part of christmas dinner, because a few people in my family are vegan. It turned out really well and everyone was happy, even the carnivores.

Serves 6 as a side with roasted chicken thighs. Loved by kids and grown ups

Lovely! I added a tsp of harissa paste to the tomatoes and cooked them in the oven with the chickpeas and vegetables for about 20 minutes at the end. Perfect with sausages!

Made it with carrots, sweet potato, courgette, a leek, and a jar of pasta sauce with the chickpeas. Also had couscous on the side. It was delicious.

I made this as a main for my family of five (2adults,2 kids & baby). It was simple to make, I roasted the veg ahead of time and it made for a quick meal in the evening after clubs.

The fresh coriander really makes this dish, it was well received and we had it with Garlic flatbread which went perfectly.

When I make it again I will add cumin seeds as well as coriander at the beginning, I will also pop the potatoes on a separate baking tray and add them at the very end before serving to keep them crisp.
Overall a delicious and simple family meal.

Added 1 sweet potato and used 200g of chickpeas and it was amazing! Extremely tasty and filling with plenty leftovers. Served mine with some roast chicken but vegetables were so delicious I would have been happy to have on its own or with a few shavings of Parmesan on top, real comfort food

Really enjoyed this recipe, So easy to cook

I realised that I didn't have any coriander seeds so used cumin seeds instead, seemed like a perfect substitute, my 2 year old wouldn't leave it alone :)

Liked this recipe last time. Will be making again tomorrow eat with must have meat boyfriend will have it as a tasty side dish.

This was a big hit with veggie friends and meat eaters, I have left out chick peas and substituted these with a variety of other ingredients, in fact it is open to all manner of 'mix and match' ingredients, - very good.

Bang in a few sausages after 15 mins. Makes all the difference.

This was disgusting. A mushy mess. Added some stock, blended and made a soup so as not to waste the veg.

We had vegetarian friends round so I made this, they loved it, as did the non vegetarian friends, this will become an 'old favourite, it lends itself to variations too. Lovely!
I have now made this many many times I use green giant tin corn instead of chick peas, looks colourful too and I use 4/6 cloves of garlic. It is actually very versatile and open to adaption. Truely scrumptious!

I made this last night and was tasty but i think that was due to taking advice from previous comments and seasoned well. I also used some sweet potato and baby charlotte potatoes seasoned with salt, pepper, ground coriander, nutmeg and a squeeze of honey to give a little sweetness. I think this would be really nice with some good quality sausages too :-).

This was lovely. Roasted the potatoes separately to keep them crisp. Served with sausages and crusty bread

We liked this dish very much. I did roast the potatoes separately so that they were crisp. I also put cheese and breadcrumbs on top of this dish at the end for a few minutes.
