Tagine for Mum

After yet another quite indulgent weekend, some meals mainly made of vegetables was definitely on the cards. I also needed to prepare something that could be made in advance and heated when required to fit in with meeting Mum at the station and then watching the play. This is what was concocted. It makes masses. I will be eating it for days…

A butternut squash, peeled and cubed

A yellow pepper (or red)

An onion

Two cloves of garlic

A teaspoon each of cumin, coriander, chilli powder and harissa 

Some new potatoes

A courgette, chopped into chunks

A few carrots, chopped into chunks

A tin of chickpeas

A tin of chopped tomatoes

500ml of either chicken or veggie stock

Fresh coriander to serve

Soften the onions then add the spices and garlic. Fry for a few minutes. Chuck in all of the vegetables and then the  tinned toms and stock. Simmer for 30mins. Add the chickpeas. Either serve now or reheat later. We had this with brown rice but cous cous would be tasty too. As would a handful of flaked almonds scattered on top.
