By Healthy Diet
Serves: 4 Cooking Time: 30 minutes
1 Pack of Gosh! Moroccan Spiced Falafel
3 courgettes halved lengthways, sliced
1 red pepper, stalk and seeds removed, cut into chunks
3 tbsp olive oil
1 medium red onion, sliced
4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 tsp coriander
1 tsp cumin
400g tin chopped tomatoes
1 tbsp harissa paste
2 tbsp honey/maple syrup
100g/3½oz dried apricots, chopped
Handful of cherry tomatoes
Handful of chopped coriander
Salt and pepper
250g cooked quinoa to serve
Preheat the oven to 170°C fan.
Mix together the courgette and red pepper in a large bowl. Drizzle over 2 tablespoons of olive oil and mix to coat. Season generously with salt and pepper.
Heat a large, non-stick frying pan over a high heat. When the pan is hot, add the vegetables and fry, stirring and turning regularly, for 3–4 minutes, or until lightly browned.
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.
Stir in the chopped tomatoes, harissa paste, honey and apricots until well combined. Add the vegetables and cook for 2–3 minutes.
Cover and transfer to the oven. Cook for 15 minutes, then stir in 100ml of cold water until well combined. Add the Gosh! Moroccan Spiced Falafel and return to the oven, covered, for a further 15 minutes.
Sprinkle the tagine with the chopped coriander and serve with the cooked quinoa.
Try adding some Feta Cheese squares just before serving for a little something extra – it really is delicious!
