This veggie Moroccan-style stew tastes even better if made a few hours before, or even a day in advance

This is the most delicious dish ever! It suits my family of 2 vegans, a vegetarian and a coeliac! We all love it. Wonderful aromas throughout the house and tastes like mulled wine all year round :)

Not bad as a veggie dish with changes. I substituted some of the potato for butternut squash and added ras-el-hanout for some spice as well as the cumin, fennel and coriander seeds. Still needs a tweak of more seeds, more peppers and liquid. We scored it 7.5 but could be an 8

I made this last night however the taste was a little off (i think the orange and the red wine!) so I adapted it a bit by adding 3 tsp of smoked paprika and instead of simmering it I put it in the oven to bake- I also omitted the prunes and through in some last minute mushrooms. I put some chopped fresh coriander on the top too and it was much nicer

Horrid recipe to say the least. Orange kills the dish.

Followed the recipe exactly but was disappointed with the result, the flavour of the roast veg and spices was overpowered by the orange and wine so I would probably just use the zest and maybe 100 ml of wine if I were to make it again. I added some salt so it was OK.

Follow recipe exactly and it tasted just great! I am surprised with the negative comments. My guests all loved this dish... I didn't read the comments before making this dish otherwise I would not have made it.

I too made a few changes, which I think really made the difference. There was no fennel or fennel seeds available where I live so I used butternut squash instead and used a little tarragon instead of the fennel seeds to keep the slight linqourise/anissed flavour. This was probably why I didn't find the issues with the fennel taste clashing as other people mentioned. Other than that though i left everything else as stated. I was very apprehensive when i made the wine sauce as it tasted so strongly of the wine. However, once I put in the veg and left it for a few hours to 'mature' it was really lovely when we had it that evening and the leftovers the next day.

Made this last night and had to make a few adaptations to the sauce. The orange was quite strong and bitter in it, added cumin powder, spiced paprika powder, chilli, ground coriander and worcester sauce. It may have been down to the face that the oranges were not great, but defiantly needs spices in the sauce. Also tried leeks in the veg mix and worked great!

I tried this dish last weekend and it was GREAT. I quite like the addition of wine, which gave an interesting taste to the dish (avoids the tomatoes to be too overpowering). great with the couscous and toasted almonds!

I made a few adaptations: 1. I curshed the cumin, fennel and corriander seeds, and used powdered cinnamon. 2. cut the fennel into smaller chunks, as it's quite a strong taste. 3. used vegetable stock, instead of red wine, 4. added a little fresh green chillie 5. served with rice rather then couscous DELICIOUS!
