Tunisian Vegetable And Chickpea Tagine


Put soaked chickpeas in a medium-sized saucepan, cover with water and bring to the boil over a medium heat. Reduce heat and cook until soft, about 30–40 minutes. Drain and set aside.
Heat a large ovenproof casserole or saucepan over a medium–high heat. Add oil and onion and cook for 5–6 minutes, stirring often, until softened. Add spices, carrots, potatoes, parsnips and sweet potato. Cook for a further 3–4 minutes, stirring often. Add lemon juice, stock, tomato sugo and season with salt. Bring to the boil.
Preheat oven to 180°C.
Cover the tagine with a lid and cook in the preheated oven for 45 minutes. Check to see whether the vegetables are tender. Add zucchini and cooked chickpeas and cook for a further 10 minutes. Add spinach leaves and stir through until they wilt. Check seasoning.
Sprinkle with coriander leaves to serve.
