- 1 tin tomatoes 400g
- 1 small red onion thinly sliced

Place chickpeas, apricots, olives, courgette, onion, tomatoes, garlic and 1 Tbspn spice mix into a baking dish and mix well. Season to taste. Sprinkle the additional half teaspoon of spice mix onto the chicken and place on top of vegetable mix. Spray with low fat cooking spray and bake for 30-35 minutes at 170 C. Serve with rice or vegetables of your choice.
NB This is my version of the fabulous Pinch of Nom recipe Ras El Hanout Chicken. There are only 2 of us and I freeze the other half which comes out perfectly.
Tomato & Red Pepper Dahl
1 quite large onion
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 large red pepper chopped small
- little oil or low calorie spray
- 1 Tbs curry paste or curry powder
- 175g red lentils
- 1 tin chopped tomatoes
- 16 fl oz vegetable stock
- juice 1/2 lemon
- chopped coriander to serve if liked
Heat oil in large pan, add onion and
cook gently on low heat for 5 minutes til soft. Stir in the garlic and
curry and cook for a further 2 minutes so onions are covered with
mixture. Don't have the heat to high or it will burn and spoil the
Stir in lentils,
red pepper, tin of tomatoes and stock. Bring to the boil then reduce
heat and simmer for 15 - 20 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and coriander,
season to taste. This is very versatile and kidney beans or sweetcorn
can be added for bulk.
NB I've been making this very useful spicy, winter warmer for years as an accompaniment to curry although it can be served
alone with rice or baked potatoes. I freeze it in small pots for a
quick hot lunch microwaved from frozen - I even like it cold!
