Meat features in many of my recipes. However, I have been looking at meatless recipes in recent times and this is one of my top pick. This hearty vegetable tajine is naturally sweet and spicy with no processed sugar, honey or sweetners.
I used five vegetables, courgette, eggplant, carrots, red peppers and sweet potatos, are of which counts towards your five a day and highly nutritious vegetables. The ingredient list is long but they are ingredients you may already have and you easily get at your usual grocer.
The preferred pot to use is a tajine but haevy based pot or dutch oven will work as well. Most of the work lie in the chopping of the vetables but that will only take about twenty minutes of your time. Most of the cooking on the stove is on low heat until all the vegetables are cooked.
Vegetable tagine is a delicious and spicy stew from North Africa, usually cooked in tagines, pot with a conical lid that tapers at the tip. The stew uses spices like cumin, cinnamon, coriander, turmeric saffron and many others.
Yes, you can cook a tagine without a tagine(that is the Noth African pot with a conical lid). Use any pot you have with a tight lid to trap moisture as you cook in low heat. A dutch oven is the best alternative to a tagine.
The North Africans usually have this on couscous or with bread. You could also have it on rice as I do or with salads, bitter greens and olives.
