Pumpkin & Chickpea Tagine


(Serves 4)

1½ cups cooked chickpeas

½ pumpkin chopped into cubes

4 tomatoes, diced

2 large potatoes, 3 to 5mm slices

1 onion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, finely sliced

2 tsp ground cumin

2 tsp ground cinnamon

⅛ tsp saffron threads

1 lemon, 2 rind pieces cut off

1 red chilli, thinly sliced

1½ cups stock

1 handful fresh coriander leaves, chopped


Heat a tagine pot or saucepan on a medium heat. Add ¼ cup water and fry the onions, garlic and chilli, until soft and transparent for about 2 minutes. Add the lemon rind, cumin, coriander, cinnamon and saffron. Add a dash more water and cook for a few more minutes.

Add the sliced potatoes on top, then add the pumpkin, chopped tomato and chickpeas. Pour in just enough water/stock to cover the vegetables (about 1½  cups).

Cover with a lid and simmer on a low heat for about 20 minutes, stir every 5 minutes to stop it burning on the bottom of the Tagine. Cook until the vegetables are tender. Add salt to taste and add a squeeze of lemon juice to taste. Serve with chopped coriander leaves on top and wholemeal couscous on the side.
