    Probably the most widely-used oil in cooking, olive oil is pressed from fresh olives. It's…

  • 1 tsp each ground cumin, paprika, cinnamon and mild chilli powder
  • 400g can chopped tomato
  • 2 small handfuls soft dried apricots
  • 2 tsp honey

  1. Heat oven to 200C/fan 180C/gas 6. Scatter the veg over a couple of baking trays, drizzle with half the oil, season, then rub the oil over the veg with your hands to coat. Roast for 30 mins until tender and beginning to brown.

  2. Meanwhile, fry the spices in the remaining oil for 1 min – they should sizzle and start to smell aromatic. Tip in the tomatoes, apricots, honey and a can of water. Simmer for 5 mins until the sauce is slightly reduced and the apricots plump, then stir in the veg and some seasoning. Serve with couscous or jacket potatoes.

Very disappointing.

Makes a seriously huge amount! Even if I had halved it, it would have been a LOT for 2 people! Very nice, a bit sweet- I reduced the sauce a little too much, which was a shame as then it didn't have enough juice to it once I served it on top of cous-cous. Very nice though, and I will certainly make again, varying the veg and using dates as someone else has suggested. Healthy and aromatic! Nice for autumn.

Bit of a mixed opinion on this. The sauce was lush, especially with all the apricots - I chucked in some pomegranite molasses too for good measure. The veg was alright, but next time I make this I'll definitely be swapping out the roots for things like aubergine and courgette. I'd like to throw in some chickpeas too for a bit of protein. Overall, I'm glad I tried this recipe and will be using it as a base for other meals in future, but don't think I'll make it as stated again.

Sorry, but didn't like this at all. It had flavour and was spicy (we added fresh chilli and harissa paste) but think it was an overload on root vegetables which gave it an non-enjoyable earthy flavour. Halving it still made more than enough for two.

Made this in the slow cooker for me and my friend who usually hates anything vegetarian but he absolutley loved it and so did I. One of my favourite recipes I've made so far!

Found this very boring. Spices didn't seem to stand out. Only saving grace is my love of roast parsnips, picked them out and threw rest away.

I love this recipe! I have substituted some veg for others ie aubergine for parsnips etc, and sometimes I've added chicken. It all works out lovely and such a versatile recipe. Tasty, healthy and easy to make. Love, love, love it!

Really tasty and easy. Possibly slightly sweet (and I have a sweet tooth!) so I just served in smaller portions.

a very good recipe that went down very well even among the non vegetarians. goes very well with crusty bread or a blob of sour cream.

A brilliant dish, I made it with cous cous and it was nice and filling and flavoursome. My whole family loved it and had extras! I roasted my vegetables for longer than the given time though. Very good dish, not very hard to make, very healthy, and very filling! I will definitely make it again.
