1 small onion, roughly chopped

Gently fry the onion, garlic, and spices in olive oil.
Add the harissa paste, and fry for a further two minutes.
Now add the butternut, potato, peppers, marrows and gems, and fry for five minutes.
Add the can tomatoes, as well as half a can water, and cover.
Simmer for 30 minutes.
Check seasoning, and add salt and pepper.
Add the chickpeas, cover and simmer for a further 15 minutes, or until all the vegetables are cooked.
Add a handful of green olives, the lemon juice and some fresh coriander, and simmer for 5 more minutes.
Serve with couscous.
