  • Halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Place a large pot over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil. When hot, add half the onion. Fry until softened, 4-5 mins.
  • Add 240ml water (double for 4p) and half the stock to the pot. Bring to the boil.
  • Add the bulgur, bring back to the boil. Simmer, 1 min.
  • Cover and remove from heat. Leave for 12-15 mins or until ready to serve.

TIP: If you're in a hurry you can boil the water in your kettle.

  • Meanwhile, peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Trim the courgette then slice into 1cm thick rounds.
  • Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
  • Pop half into a bowl and roughly mash with the back of a fork.
  • Place a medium pan over high heat (no oil).
  • When hot, add the courgette and cook until charred, 3-4 mins each side. Turn only occasionally—this will allow the courgette to pick up a nice colour.
  • Once cooked, remove from pan and chop into roughly 1cm pieces.
  • Transfer to a bowl, season with salt and pepper and cover to keep warm.
  • Wipe the (now empty) pan and return it to medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • When hot, add the remaining onion and cook until softened, 4-5 mins.
  • Add the garlic and chickpeas (both whole and mashed) and cook for 1 min more.
  • Pour 100ml water (double for 4p), passata, remaining stock and two-thirds of the harissa paste into the pan.
  • Stir together, then bring to a simmer and cook until thickened, 8-10 mins.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Bring to the boil, stir in the prawns and cook for a further 3-4 mins. IMPORTANT: Wash your hands and equipment after handling raw prawns. Prawns are cooked when pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.
  • When everything is ready, fluff up the bulgur with a fork and mix in the remaining harissa.
  • Share the bulgur between your bowls and top with the harissa prawn stew.
  • Garnish with the charred courgette.
