  • A Middle Eastern classic, a bit like ratatouille with those signature spices
  • Great as a main, but delicious as a side dish to share, too

Try It With:

  • Traditionally this is served with eggs, but they don’t freeze well. Add your own, breaking two into the dish 15 mins before it’s done
  • Fresh parsley sprinkled on top

How We Make It At Our Kitchen

*We’re committed to growing our range of vegan-friendly dishes. However, we can’t claim official vegan certification as our kitchen doesn’t have a separate area for vegan preparation and cooking.

  • We hand prepare and slice some fresh red and green peppers, which are flash fried in a little oil and garlic.
  • Next we add diced onion, salt, cumin seeds, caraway seeds, chilli flakes, smoked paprika and cracked black pepper. Once the onions are soft we add the tomato puree and cook out for a few minutes before adding chopped tomatoes.
  • The sauce is then simmered before being finished with parsley and coriander. Then in goes chickpeas, chargrilled aubergine, and marinated cauliflower.

They freeze badly, but it's a simple, tasty addition if you fancy adding your own. Ten to twelve minutes before it's done just peel off the film (careful, it's hot!), stir, create a small well in the top, and crack an egg into it, before putting it back into the oven.
