    1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, gas mark 6. Cut the bread in half horizontally. Trim off and discard the top and bottom crust to leave 2 flat slices of bread.

    2. Place all the remaining ingredients, except the red onion and salad leaves, in a small roasting tin and mix gently to combine. Cook in the oven with the bread for 15 minutes until the vegetables are hot and the bread is golden and crispy.
    3. Spoon the vegetable mixture into a large salad bowl, add the red onion and salad leaves and toss together well. Serve immediately with the hot harissa croutons, cut in half, and lemon wedges to squeeze over.
