Pretty uninspiring, as you can imagine, with veg stock, and barely a hint of the cumin and cinnamon. Anglicised yawn of a dish. There are easy alternatives that are much better. Possibly try bumping up to a teaspoon for the spices, and adding 1 tsp ras el hanout, 4cm ginger, and dashes of lemon juice. It's basically a veg casserole otherwise. Just a load of veg dumped together tastelessly.

This was quick and simple to prepare. I realised too late that I’d run out of ground coriander so I used ras el hanout with a sprinkling of cinnamon; otherwise I followed the recipe exactly (using low salt stock cube). I found it perfectly edible, but a bit unexciting: for me alone I wouldn’t bother making again; the 2 preschoolers (almost 1 and picky almost 3 yr old) who were my dining companions loved it though - no complaints and clean plates so will keep this in the binder as a way of getting lots of veg into them when needed (and particularly so when I would otherwise be reaching for the prunes as the chickpea, raisin and courgette combination is great in this respect!!)

I used a curry paste instead of the spices and a small tin of chopped tomatoes & herbs instead of the tomatoes. Veg was cooked just right. Tasty and easy.

I made this tonight with trepidation as anything vegetarian is met with 'what no meat??!' But it was a winner! I added butternut squash and sweet potato to hide the courgette that the kids say they hate. Also a sprinkling of chilli powder gave it an extra kick. Clean plates from a family of five very fussy eaters!

Delicious. When I visited Morocco almost all the vegetable tagines had chunky carrot in them, so I had to add some go this recipe! It added to the sweetness of the dish and brought a nice texture to it too. Very easy and quick to make, makes food for 2 days. Super healthy and super yummy!

Very easy and healthy meal ideal for mid week and getting some goodness into kids. I used half a can of chopped tomatoes instead of the 2 tomatoes and after tasting before serving, added an extra teaspoon of all 3 spices. And a squirt of tomato puree. Served it with cous cous. Rated it 4 because its quick, easy, healthy and uses ingredients we usually have in.

A very very basic meal. However quite tasty. I was going to serve just with bread but decided it did not look substantial enough, so served with pilau rice. The portion easily fed 2 adults and 3 children with some left for lunch next day. The kids polished it off and it was a quick supper to make. Next time I will add more tomato and maybe some cauliflower.

Amazingly tasty considering how easy it is. I halved the ingredients to cook for two and it was full of flavour. I served it with a lemon & coriander couscous and a dollop of creme fraiche. Will definitely use this recipe again. It's easy enough to be a mid-week dinner and tasty enough to cook for other people too. Total winner. Love it.

Quite nice, we enjoyed it without additional side. Should serve 6 in my opinion.

Hello, We wouldn't advise freezing this as the courgettes won't defrost very successfully, they tend to turn mushy. We do have several recipes for tagines that will freeze, I've posted one below.
