Ras el hanout is a Moroccan blend of spices often found in tagines, giving the dish an absolutely gorgeous flavour! It can be found in some large supermarkets or shops, or you can make your own (the blend contains cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, coriander, cumin, nutmeg, turmeric and ground black pepper). Merguez sausages can be found at some butchers or ordered online.
Even meat-eaters will love this flavour-packed vegetable stew. The slightly tart taste of dried cherries combines with sweet, plump raisins in a spicy mixture of chunky vegetables, chickpeas and ginger. Despite the long list of ingredients, the stew is simple to prepare for a hearty family meal.
Capture the atmosphere of Morocco with this filling stew of lamb, fruit and vegetables, served with fluffy couscous.
This lamb dish is a cracker when I invite people round to my house. Everybody says, "cook lamb tagine again!" so it sort of stuck!!
