Good recipe, tasty & different, I just added a teaspoon of harissa which is quite enough for us, also didn't add any water as there was enough liquid without. Had it with boiled rice.

Good midweek meal - the family really liked it. Used above tip and cooked the courgettes separately first in a little olive oil. Go easy on the harissa if you don't want it too spicy. Served with couscous.

Loved this recipe. Halved the amount and it was delicious, nice and spicy but not too much. Will become a favourite supper dish I'm sure.

Yuk. Watery & pretty tasteless. Won't be making it again.

This was OK but I don't think I'll make it again. I think there are better recipes to try out there.

Really tasty recipe, my only change was adding some dried apricots and a few tablespoons of ground almonds along with the veg. Also served with cous cous and some crime fraiche as it had a bit of a kick! I'll definitely be making again :-)

warming, tasty and wholesome, though I'd suggest roasting the courgettes separately in some olive oil, adding at the end. Delicious with cous cous
