Really easy and delicious! I halved the amount of veg and quorn (as I was making this for 2 people) and used a courgette instead of parsnips. Also used a 1 tbsp of honey as I think 2 would have been too sweet. Served with rice, great satisfying low cal meal!

Very easy to make and delicious too! I added a tin of chickpeas to the tagine and served with couscous made with veg stock stirred though with toasted almonds and fresh coriander. Went down a treat at a dinner party for some vegetarian friends. Will def be making again.

Very good recipe! Easy to make too! Think I used curry paste or power instead of harissa - but came out just as good! I made it for my housemates and they loved it! :-)

Used Blue Dragon sweet chilli sauce in place of harissa and falafel instead of quorn/tofu - came out very flavoursome, good with rice leftover from last night's Indian. I made it with a mixture of courgette, carrot and aubergine, the courgette and carrot were really tender and lovely, but DO NOT make it with aubergine. It was DISGUSTING and I had to pick out the aubergine and throw it away.

This was a little disappointing in that although the vegetables were a good mix, the addition of honey made the whole dish too sweet, even though I only used 1 tbsp. If I made it again I think I may try thai red curry paste instead of harissa, as suggested above and also omit the honey.

Really great recipe - full of flavour and really easy to prepare. I added chiken strips cooked in harissa because i had chicken in the fridge and it made a very hearty meal - would do this again with or without the meat.

Absolutely gorgeous. Served for a bunch of meat eaters and one vegetarian. None of the meat eaters even noticed it was veggie!

This is one of my favourite recipes. I use whatever veg I have at home and it always comes out great. I use harissa powder rather than paste, and also fresh grated ginger if I have it. It's great both with quorn and tofu.

This is delicious and easy to make. It also works well with thai red curry paste in place of the harissa.
