  1. Heat the oil in a large, lidded saucepan over a high heat. Fry the onion for 5 mins or until starting to colour. Add the squash mix; cook for a further 5 mins, stirring occasionally, or until starting to brown. Add the harissa paste and cook for 1 min. 
  2. Pour in the soup, fill the can with 200ml water and add that too. Stir in the chickpeas and dried apricots. Reduce the heat to medium, cover and simmer for 15-18 mins or until the squash and sweet potatoes are tender. 
  3. Meanwhile, make up the couscous to pack instructions. Just before serving, stir the olives through the tagine, scatter with the coriander and serve spooned over the couscous.
