This Moroccan tagine is rich and delicious thanks to three dried fruits, hearty chickpeas and aromatics like saffron and orange. Make this ahead of time for your next dinner party for a no-worry meal.
Mutton meat is frequently used in Moroccan tagines, known as "Mouton", and it is a rich and flavourful meat. You could make the same tagine with lamb. This is one of my mother's recipes in which all the ingredients used make a delectable combo. If you don't have a tagine, you can use any heavy casserole with a lid, or any heavy-bottomed shallow lidded pan or pot. Remember to cook it on very low heat!
Lamb tagine is terrifically warming and elegantly spiced. This is an easy tagine recipe that you can prepare for midweek, or for guests. One pot means there's less washing up! If you do not have a tagine, use a casserole and the end result will still be delicious!
Chicken cooked in a tagine is always meltingly tender. Adding sweet, caramelised pears at the end makes this dish irresistible.
A glorious one-pot lamb tagine made with succulent lamb shoulder, chickpeas and a variety of Moroccan spices. Choose apricots or prunes as your fruity addition - they're both delicious!
Slow cooking till the beef is nearly falling apart is the secret to this melt-in-the-mouth tagine. Prunes add some sweetness and with the addition of butternut squash and chickpeas, it's truly an all-in-one meal!
This tagine recipe is done in no time thanks to the pressure cooker, perhaps one of the most under-utilised kitchen tools! Serve this lamb tagine with couscous or bulgur for a fantastic Moroccan feast.
Tagines are almost invariably made with mutton. Using lamb cuts down the cooking time, but if you can find good hogget (older than lamb, younger than mutton) that will do very well.
This makes a great side to any meat or veggie main, mixed grill and of course tagine.
This chicken tagine with potatoes, pumpkin and chickpeas is very hearty and very tasty. I often prepare it during the winter when it is cold outside. Everyone in the family loves it! Serve with couscous.
