Tagine is a dish typical of Maghreb cuisine. A dish with a thousand versions, tagine is prepared with ingredients and spices that differ from one region to another. Everyone can adapt it as they please. But don’t worry that it will be complicated and take a long time to prepare; it’s a simple dish that anyone can make.
The recipe is perfect for using all the leftover vegetables you have at home. I love these simmered dishes that take a little bit of everything. Traditionally, tagine is eaten directly from the dish—which sits in the center of the table—with a piece of bread. You will love the fragrant juice and tender vegetables of this tagine.
