Ingredients

  • 3 aubergine, diced
  • Good glug of oil for frying
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (use pre-chopped if short of time)
  • 2 tsp ground cumin (optional)
  • ½ tsp chilli powder (optional)
  • 1 tin chickpeas
  • 1 tin tomatoes
  • 3 tbsp tagine paste (our favourite is Belazu, found in Sainsbury's (see below), but most of the supermarkets will stock either their own brand or at least one other brand. Also find online and in health food shops)
  • 250ml/1 cup strong vegan stock (add more if sticking to the pan)
  • 2 handfuls apricots, finely chopped OR 2 handfuls of raisins or sultanas
  • 2 handfuls green olives (optional)
  • 2 preserved lemons, finely chopped (optional)

Instructions

  • In a wok or large saucepan fry the aubergine (in a good amount of oil) until it is soft and lightly golden, stirring frequently (or if you prefer, roast it in the oven on 180ºC until golden).
  • Add the garlic and fry for a further minute.
  • Add all other ingredients and stir thoroughly.
  • Heat on a medium heat for 15 minutes until most of the stock has been absorbed and you have a nice, thick tagine.
  • Optional: serve with yoghurt, fresh coriander, flaked almonds and couscous.
