·         4 baby aubergines, sliced lengthways

·         2 green peppers, deseeded and sliced

·         2 red peppers, deseeded and sliced

·         2 red onions, sliced

·         2 ripe tomatoes, sliced

·         3 courgettes, thinly sliced

·         2 tbsp olive oil, plus extra for basting

·         2 pieces Arab-style flatbread


·         400g tinned chickpeas, drained

·         ½ tbsp paprika

4.    During the last five minutes of cooking the vegetables, baste the aubergines with the harissa-honey mix, and cook for about three minutes longer than the other vegetables, or until they begin to blacken and soften.

5.    Split open the flatbreads using a sharp knife and lightly toast.

6.    To assemble, place the vegetables and chickpea salad on the toasted flatbread with some salad leaves.

Chef’s Tip

If you find harissa too hot, use half the quantity and add extra cumin

Andy’s Guide To Moroccan Spices

·         Ras el Hanout:

Every cook has their own version of this legendary spice mix for tagines, which has 20-30 ingredients, including cardamom, cumin, clove, cinnamon, coriander, nutmeg, rosebuds and fennel. Ras el hanout means ‘head of the shop’ in Arabic, and implies the best spices available.

·         Saffron:

Called zafrane in Morocco, saffron is one of the world’s most expensive spices. Described as having a bitter, honey-like taste, the delicate strands from the crocus flower are used in meat-based tagines.

·         Vanilla salt:

An interesting mix that’s sprinkled liberally on fresh fruit salads, sweet pastries and soups.

·         Mint:

Fresh and dried mint leaves form the centre of the daily tea ritual in Morocco. Dried mint and spearmint also flavour Smen butter, used as a rub for lamb.
