Instructions

Cook the Rice
1
  • Preheat your oven to 240°C/220°C fan/gas mark 9.
  • Pour 300ml cold salted water (double for 4p) into a medium pot with a tight-fitting lid.
  • Stir in the rice and half the turmeric and bring to the boil.
  • Once boiling, lower the heat to medium, cover with the lid and cook for 10 mins.
  • Remove the pot from the heat and keep covered for another 10 mins or until ready to serve (the rice will continue to cook in its own steam).
Char the Pepper
2
  • Meanwhile, halve the pepper and discard the core and seeds. Chop into 2cm chunks.
  • Pop the pepper onto a lined baking tray.
  • Drizzle with a little oil, season with salt and pepper then toss to coat.
  • When the oven is hot, roast on the top shelf until soft and slightly charred, 15-18 mins.
Prep the Veg
3
  • Meanwhile, halve, peel and chop the onion into small pieces.
  • Peel and grate the garlic (or use a garlic press).
  • Roughly chop the coriander (stalks and all).
  • Drain and rinse the lentils in a sieve.
Start the Harira
4
  • Place a large pan over medium-high heat with a drizzle of oil.
  • Once hot, fry the onion until softened, stirring occasionally, 4-5 mins.
  • Stir in the garlic, cumin, harissa spice mix, half the cinnamon (double for 4p), drained lentils and remaining turmeric.
  • Fry for another 2-3 mins.
  • Add the passata, 100ml water and ¼ tsp salt (double both for 4p). Cover and simmer for 6-8 mins.
Finishing Touches
5
  • Once everything is ready, stir the cranberry chutney and half the roasted pepper through the harira. 
  • Add a splash of water to loosen the stew if required.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Garnish and Serve
6
  • Fluff up the fragrant turmeric rice with a fork and divide between plates.
  • Serve the flavorful harira alongside.
  • Scatter over the remaining roasted pepper.
  • Finish with a sprinkling of chopped coriander.
