Add the tomato paste and harissa (if using) and cook for 30 seconds, then add the tomato, sweet potato, parsnip, carrot, dates and olives and stir to combine. Pour in the stock or water, mix well and bring to the boil.
  2. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pan and simmer for 30 minutes until the vegetables are just tender.
  3. Add the broccoli, cauliflower and zucchini to the pan.
  4. Cover the pan and cook for 15 minutes until all the vegetables are soft. Season with salt and pepper.
  5. To finish, serve directly from the pan or tagine or transfer to a large serving bowl. Squeeze over the lemon wedges (if using), sprinkle with the cilantro leaves and serve with some yoghurt.
