Another ghent night contender, this spicy vegetarian tagine (which can be made in a normal saucepan if you wish) is simple to make, delicious and healthy.

If you are making this for 2 people, just reduce the amount of carrots and chickpeas, keeping the remaining ingredients about the same.

Any bean or pulse would work well in this recipe. We used soya beans because someone picked up the wrong cans. It was just as good as normal!
