Method

  1. Heat 2 tbsp oil in a pan and fry the onions until lightly coloured. Add ginger, pumpkin and spices, stir, then add honey, passata and cranberries. Bring to the boil.

  2. Reduce the heat, cover, then simmer for 20 mins until the pumpkin is tender. After 10 mins, stir in the chickpeas. (If the mixture is a little thick, you can loosen it with some vegetable stock.)

  3. Meanwhile, tip the couscous, stock granules and lemon zest into a heatproof bowl. Pour over 300ml boiling water, stir briefly and cover with a plate. Leave for 5 mins. Tip in the lemon juice, almonds and remaining tbsp oil and fluff up with a fork. Scatter the coriander over the tagine and serve with the couscous.

made this dish for our evening meal today. It was absolutely delicious. Used a cinnamon stick and substituted dried apricots for the cranberries. Usually make tagine with chicken but preferred the squash. Will certainly make again for the whole family.

Fab dish that could easily be served along side meat for non veggies. Used tinned toms chopped small instead of passatta and a little chilli powder as I had no harissa. Will definitely make this again soon!

This was delicious. Fried garlic with the onion (as always!) and cumin seeds and chili. The passata made a lovely thick sauce so definitely worth using over tinned tomatoes. Will be making again!

This dish is the business!! I used butternut squash and it was just lovely, sweet, spicy, hot and filling - cannot fault it.....and neither can the family, they loved it. Good dish if you are feeding lots of people. I have decided that anything that uses Harissa paste gets my vote, love the stuff!!

Delicious! Fried some garlic with the onions. Used less passata and added some water as it would be very thick otherwise. However, simmered for 40mins rather than 20!

But she's being a typica 4 year old I guess!! and my partner does'nt really like cous cous, but it's one I will be making in batches and freezing all for myself!! lovely

This was a great recipe. I made it for 35 people. Making it tomorrow for 60 people. I just put a little less onions. I live in Los Angeles and the onions are so big, it feels like I cannot put 20 in the pot....

Delicious, used lazy chilli instead of harissa & a tin of chopped tomatoes instead of passata. Lovely light mid week meal.
