In his awesome book VEG, Jamie Oliver creates some wonderful recipes. The variety is amazing and inspires to even more variety.

Readers who know his book will recognize the recipe easily.

Mine is a bit different, no roses harissa but normal one, no pickled lemons but lemon zeste, no dried cherries but raisins, no potatoes but more vegetables instead, and above all, only oven cooking.

For 2p, chop 1 leek, 4 garlic cloves and 300 grams of butternut squash. Put in a rectangular or oval oven dish. Spread 1 table spoon of fennel seeds and a drizzle of olive oil. Bake in the oven at 180° for 20 mins.

In the meanwhile, half 300 grams of cherry tomatoes. Put them on a plate. Spread some pepper, salt, 1 table spoon of olive oil, 1 table spoon of red wine vinegar. Allow to marinate.

After 20 mins, add 300 grams of chopped courgettes, the zeste of 1 lemon, 1 table spoon of harissa and 1 table spoon of raisins. Mix. Put back in the oven. Bake for another 20 mins. Add the tomatoes( keep the fluid) and 1 can of chickpeas with a small amount of the liquid. Mix, taste, add pepper and salt.

Brush the liquid of the tomatoes on 4 sheets of filo pastry. Spread on the vegetables. Spread 1 table spoon of sesame on the dough.

Bake for another 25 mins, until the surface is golden brown and crispy. Serve with some low fat Greek yogurt mixed with some harissa.
