Harissa and Smoked Paprika Roasted Veg with Hazelnuts, Freekah and Feta

The freekeh can be substituted for any other grain/mix of grains. Use whatever veg you have – in the picture I used sweet potato, peppers, onions and aubergine. I also added frozen veggie sausages to the bowl of veggies at the stage when you add the spices, and cooked them along with the veg. Ellie Hopkins
