    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.

    4. Stir in the dukkah, half of the juice from the lemon and half of the chopped parsley. Season with sea salt and black pepper.
    5. In a bowl, mix the tahini with the remaining harissa spice and lemon juice, 1 to 2 tablespoons of water and a pinch of sea salt.
    6. To serve, place the aubergine on a warm plate and scatter over the remaining parsley. Serve alongside the chickpeas and vegetables and drizzle over the harissa tahini sauce.
