This section of our website is for recipes and tips shared by Ninja users, so they have not been tested by us and we do not have nutritional information for recipes.

This plant packed recipe is easy to prepare and fuss-free thanks to the Ninja Foodi. The chickpeas are a source of plant-based protein, whilst harissa adds extra depth to the flavour. Share with friends and family or batch cook ahead of time. Goes perfectly with flatbreads, rice or cous cous.
