  2. Add the hot stock, tomatoes, pumpkin, potato, carrot, chickpeas and cinnamon and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Add the courgette, dates and apricots to the saucepan, plus a little water if needed. Replace the lid and cook for a further 15 minutes or until the fruit has absorbed the liquid.
