    Method

    1. To make the chermoula, whizz paste ingredients in a blender. Heat oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Tip the oil and vegetables into a heatproof casserole and cook on the hob until lightly browned, about 7 mins. You may have to do this in two batches.

    2. Add the chermoula paste to the casserole, along with the dried fruit. Pour in 400ml water, cover with a lid and cook in the oven for 45 mins. Reduce heat to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4 and cook for another 45 mins. Sprinkle with the mint. Serve on its own or with couscous or crusty bread.

    This is a great dish! I just purchased a clay cooker and this the recipe that christened it. One minor (and pleasant) addition was replacing prunes with apricots and a small hand full of sultanas. Yum!

    This was a lovely recipe, used sweet potato instead of white, all my friends loved it even the ones who are not vegetarian.

    This is one of the best Veggie recipes ever! I've told loads of people about this great find and they love it too. The paste is amazing, I've made it with loads of different types of veggies too. To make it healthier I substitute some of the oil with water and it tastes just as nice!

    An ok recipe. The chermoula was aromatic and flavoursome but lacked a bit of depth. I didn't put in any dried fruit as I had none and put in sweet potato and squash instead of potato and 2 of the leeks, and added chickpea's too. The leeks are somewhat misplaced in this recipe I think- it would benefit from something with a bit more substance or that offered you something to chew on. And it was substance rather than flavour made me mark this recipe down. I wish chef's would remember that vegetarians have teeth too and give us something to use them on

    So so good. I normally put some harissa paste with the cous cous. But a delicious easy dish.

    Still deciding if we liked this! Bit sweet and needed something more but no idea what! Used a tagine which was perfect. Still thinking!!
