  • 1 sweet potato (about 300g/10½oz), peeled and cut into roughly 2cm/¾in chunks
  • 1 aubergine, cut into roughly 2.5cm/1in chunks
  • 2 courgettes, sliced into 2cm/¾in half-moons
  • 1 red pepper cut into roughly 2.5cm/1in chunks
  • 3 tbsp rapeseed oil
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp harissa paste
  • 2 tbsp clear honey
  • 100g/3½oz dried apricots, halved
  • 400g tin chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • handful chopped fresh coriander, to garnish
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Couscous or rice to accompany the Tagine


  1. Preheat the oven to 190C/170C Fan/Gas 5.

  2. Mix the sweet potato, aubergine, courgette and red pepper in a large bowl. Drizzle over 2 tablespoons of the oil and mix to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper.

  3. Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over a high heat. WHEN the pan is HOT, add the vegetables in batches. Fry, stirring and turning regularly, for 3-4 minutes, or until lightly browned.

  4. Heat the remaining oil in a lidded casserole over a medium heat. Add the onions and fry for 3-5 minutes, stirring regularly, until softened. Add the garlic, coriander and cumin and fry for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently.

  5. Stir in the chopped tomatoes, harissa paste, honey, apricots and chickpeas until well combined. Add the vegetables and cook for 2-3 minutes.

  6. Cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 30 minutes, then stir in 200ml/7fl oz cold water until well combined and return to the oven, covered, for a further 15 minutes, or until the tagine is thick and the vegetables are tender.

  7. Sprinkle the tagine with the chopped coriander and serve with freshly cooked couscous or rice.

I made this last week, and think it's really yummy alone or portioned as a side dish with rice or chicken. I left out the harissa paste as I didn't have any. Depending on how you serve the portions, I think it actually could serve up to 6 people! :) Will make again for my veggie friends.
