Ready to taste tagine again

Root vegetable tagine

Root vegetable tagine

As much as I love the flavors of Moroccan cooking, I had tagine overload from my trip there in 2010. Tagine, a Moroccan stew, was served for lunch and dinner for two weeks, along with a few other choices. I ended up taking a break from the dish and hadn’t made it since.

We even took a tagine cooking class there, which was a lot of fun.

I was glad to get back to Moroccan cooking again with this recipe from Epicurious, Root Vegetable Tagine with Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Turnips, and Spiced Roasted Chickpeas.

First, I made a quick version of preserved lemons and roasted the chickpeas.

Then, I sauteed all of the vegetables and spices together. It was an easy-to-make dish that cooks together all in one pot.

After the meal, we had mint tea, which really brought back the memories — and aroma — of Morocco.

  1. It sounds like you had an amazing trip to Morocco – how wonderful to take a cooking class there as well! I love the flavours in Moroccan cooking.

    This dish looks so yummy Marcy. I really want one of the tagine pots, but I think it might end up in the back of the cupboard with the breadmaker, the pie maker and countless other things that was a MUST! I won’t be able to do your memoir link this week, I’ve run out of time again! Hopefully I will be able to do the next one.

    I think I’d LOVE that dish. Unfortunately nobody else here would even try it (including the husband).

    And glad to see there’s more time on the memoir link-up. We’ve been battling bronchitis here and I thought we missed it. Glad you all survived the snowstorm. :)

  6. I’ve never had a tangine, though I’ve been to a Moroccan restaurant in Philly. I still remember sitting on pillows and sharing the dishes.

    I’m not sure if my family will go for this, and it’s definitely worth a try. :) I love the serving dish!

  7. Om nom nom! That looks delicious! I am dying to get hold of a tagine and make this dish ‘properly’. I’m also jealous you’ve been to Morroco :)

    Your vegetable tagine looks wonderful, but I think after eating twice a day for 2 weeks, I would need a break too. Thank you for sharing your delicious recipe with the Hearth and Soul Hop.
