Delicious and very straightforward to prepare - my 13 year old stepson made it mostly on his own.

This is quick and easy and so yummy that even though we'd eaten enough we were coming back for more. I couldn't find moroccan seasoning so improvised with the spices I already had having found out what goes into it from the internet. I served it with green veg.

Keep making this as it is so easy and the whole meal is done - wish everything in life was this simple. You can buy a sachet of moroccan seasoning from asda which i think is tastier than a tsp of traditional stuff.
