Vegetable Tagine

This weekend I stayed with my Grandparents by the seaside and as one of my meals whilst I was there, my Gran made me a Moroccan-style vegetable tagine, which was so lovely I decided to try and replicate it myself! Luckily I got an evening off from work so I could have a nice dinner at home, and this only takes about 15 minutes to prepare and cook so it was really good for those evenings I’m not running around at a restaurant and just want to put my feet up. I made this for me and my Mum, so it serves two, but it’s really easily halved, or just save half of it and freeze it for another day if you’re a student and just cook for yourself every night.

This version was really lovely, and really nicely spiced. I love the taste of sweet dried fruit with spicy vegetables, and this one felt really warming and filling, which was so welcome after a long shift :)

  1. I love tagines! I really like the combination of spice and sweet, actually. I wanted to get myself a tagine on a trip abroad, but it was just too heavy to lug back with all my baby stuff!
