Wedges, greens and harissa chickpeas with a tahini sauce

Serves 3 or 4, depending on how hungry you are

This is a warming, hearty dish to come home to. The potatoes are endlessly versatile, and I find myself making these wedges to accompany many other things now too.

I didn't change anything from the original method, so head over to http://thefirstmess.com/2018/03/07/harissa-chickpea-bowl-vegan-recipe/ for the how to.


This recipe tastes even better made with vegetables from Community Harvest Whetstone :)
