My new favorite! I was quite generous with the spices, especially cumin, which made it so nice and warming! Halved the amount of peas as suggested and worked out just great. It's really nice served with some minted couscous mixed with a bit of lemon juice and cashews.

We enjoyed this but it took longer to prepare than I expected. I added garlic, more spices, some mushrooms and a tin of whole tomatoes which I think gave it more flavour than fresh chopped, also put in less peas. I will do this again.

I substituted a small aubergine for one of the courgettes (essential in a tagine in my book!) plus added some extra tomato paste & a bit of harissa paste - fab! It's become a real mid-week staple for us!

This was really easy to make and I felt so much healthier after eating it. Would recommend this to anyone.

I was suprised as to how bland this tasted. Though I don't think I added enough of the herbs and spice, as it just didn't have enough flavour. However I do think it was nicer to eat the next day and there was plenty of it for a dinner for two and some lunches.

I'll come back to this and add to it I think, I haven't given up!

Very disappointing! I doubled the spices and it was still bland and boring. I sorted out the leftovers by adding chili powder and cauliflor, and was suddenly quite nice (that's the only reason I gave it 2 stars...). I much prefer the "mixed vegetable tagine" recipe with harissa.

This was a fantastic recipe, all the more so when you think you're getting 4-of-5 a day! I added some fresh mushrooms to the mix, which gave it that extra 'meatiness'. Personally the proportion of peas didn't bother me, but it could be lessened. I served it with some orange and lemon scented couscous with a cumin base. Divine! Do leave out the coriander though if you're going for this. One more thing regarding a post hereunder, the measurements for the spices are specified...

I made this recently and it was delicious! I thought it would need potatoes adding, but it was just fine without. I served it with pitta breads instead of couscous. I also forgot the coriander (even though I'd bought some specially!) and didn't think it spoiled it at all.

Really wanted to like this recipe but couldn't. The courgettes went soggy and the proportion of peas to other ingredients was immense! There aren't any measurements for the spices stated, so went with 1tsp but even at that it was fairly bland, and needed chillies adding in to lift the dish.

very tasty...my 16 month old loved it!! I had some harrisa and pita on the side with couscous. It was also TEN times better the next day! Will definitely make again.

I thought this was really tasty. be warned that you will have to take the veg out with a slotted spoon and boil down the liquid or it will be like soup. Once I did this it was much better. I forgot to put coriander on it in the end and now would not do so because I think it would spoil the subtle flavour. really tasty. I would advise an extra courgette and less peas.

so simple to just chuck together, I found the many flavours in every bite made it a satisfying meal.

I was a bit sceptical as I thought this sounded too simple to be tasty, but gave it a go based on the reviews. I was pleasantly surprised as it's lovely and really easy to make.
Great with couscous, I'll definitely make it again.
