A very common Moroccan meal is a tagine which is a North African stew of spiced meat and vegetables prepared by slow cooking in a shallow earthenware cooking dish with a tall, conical lid. The word tagine refers to both the conical-shaped dish and the stew cooked inside it. Tagines often combine sweet and savory foods to play off the spices used to season them. Here is a great recipe for a vegetable tagine to spice up your dining.
Vegetable tagines are flavorful stews loaded with cooked vegetables and spices like cumin, coriander and ginger. Chickpeas are also often common additions. These offer vegetarians and vegans a wonderful opportunity to experience Moroccan fare. As with the meat-based counterparts, vegetable tagines are served over couscous for a true Moroccan meal. The veggie tagine recipe below is a complex mixture of wonderful textures, tastes, and spices that is certain to enchant your diners!
