Roast 4 red peppers (1 per person roughly) and remove skins. Drain a 400g tin of chickpeas and dress in 3tbs of oil, add the juice of a lemon and 2 crushed cloves of garlic and a sprig of oregano (or some dried if you don't have fresh). Mix this and then mix in the peppers. Mash 300g of soft goats cheese with another clove of garlic some more e.v. olive oil, some more oregano and shape into a mould. Surround with the pepper mixture and enjoy with friends! Courtesy of Claudia Roden 'Arabesque'.

Cut a marrow in half lengthways and scoop the halves out. Fry the "scoopings" with onion and garlic. Add a tin of tomatoes and a tin of chickpeas and a bit of basil. Pile it all back in the marrow. Top with cheese and breadcrumbs and bake in the oven. Scrummy!!

I make a lovely moroccan chicken which is basically onions, courgettes, a tin of chickpeas, chicken thighs (nice and cheap!) and then stock, honey and spices. I'll look it up for you and post on facebook later!
