  1. I finally got around to making this one last night, was so yummy! Will definately be making this a regular at our place.
    I tweaked it a bit: We didn't have tomato paste so I left it out and it was fine. I'll probably half the amount of honey next time as it was pretty sweet. I also added in some Moroccan seasoning that we had handy on top of the other spices, and then added some baby spinach towards the end. Yum!
    I say definately add that extra 100g of water, good tip Sarah :)
