Not a looker but ice enough. Added a good amount of parsley which lifted it and a chilli

I didn't have shallots so just added more onions and I think the flavours are robust enough that it didn't make much difference. Delicious combination.

Great base recipe, have made it several times now and it's delicious as is, but also leaves a lot of room to play around with. Last time I swapped the carrots for red and orange peppers, added a teaspoon of spanish paprika and a teaspoon of bouillon powder (instead of the salt and pepper). Served with garlicky hasselback potatoes and greek yoghurt. Absolutely fantastic.

This is absolutely delicious! I added fresh garlic and chilli flakes. My hubby loved it! Well worth trying and cheap to make too!

I had this tonight on its own as a stew. The full ingredients as listed makes 2 portions that way. I only used 1 tablespoon of Sunflower oil to cook and each serving came to about 300 calories. It was delicious...definitely making again. Its also an incredibly easy to make recipe.

delicious.. made it for lunch for a couple of friends that were visiting. they couldn't have enough of it.. the addition of the harissa at the final stage just at serving makes it so special

This recipe is really simple and very tasty. I added spinach too which worked well and served with crushed buttered new potatoes. If serving as a main meal with potatoes, i would say this recipe serves 3.
