So, last summer Matthew and I visited Morocco for two weeks, by the end of the holiday we had pretty much had enough of couscous, tagine and Berber omelettes. But, every now again we do like to eat our own Moroccan dishes. Tonight I made us a vegetable tagine!
In Morocco you eat tagine out of your own tagine pot, it's not dished up and served on a plate like I have done and they are also boiled for hours and hours and mine was only boiled for one hour. BUT it still tasted lovely and you can pretty much put whatever you want in this dish as long as you have the basic Moroccan flavours like fresh coriander, garlic, cumin and chick peas. This is a recipe that I found on the BBC Good Food website which seems pretty good, but it could do with a few more tweeks.
2 garlic cloves
1 small butternut squash
2 large carrots
Large handful of dried apricots
1 tin of chick peas
Chicken stock with 600ml of boiled water
This recipe is great for weekend dinners when you have the extra time to cook it and you don't have to use butternut squash either, you can swap it for sweet potato!
Enjoy the tagine folks!
