Very nice combination of roasted veg. I played safe with the harissa - 1 tablespoon - and it was enough... Had to be dairy free so didn't do this dressing, I went for a lime juice, olive oil and herb alternative. Tasty.

Not sure I liked the dressing-very "goopy" as was the cous cous salad with it dressed. I took advice about the harissa amounts and I think for me that was a mistake. Just too much dressing and much too thick for my taste's picture

I loved this recipe, only put 1 tbsp of Harissa if you don't like too spicy. I loved the dressing too, went extremely well together and will definitely make again.

Was it a typing error on the 2x tbs Harissa? blew my socks off!! And yes far too much lemon in the dressing otherwise a very nice easy recipe that i will adapt in future.

This made a nice supper but go easy on the harissa as the veg was very hot! I made the tahini dressing but it tasted vile - I don't think it needs anywhere near a whole lemon. I just used a dollop of Greek yoghurt on the plate to cool down the spicy veg. Served with lamb kebabs.
