This full-flavoured tagine is a cost effective and healthy way of using an abundance of vegetables.
I love the flavours in this super easy recipe. We are going to play around with our spices here, infusing the veggies with cumin, coriander, cinnamon and the popular (slightly spicy) ras-el-hanout which is an Arabic blend of over 12 spices.
You can find ras-el-hanout, harissa and preserved lemons easily enough from good deli’s and supermarkets.
This dish is suitable for freezing; in fact, freezing will intensify its flavour.
Super Quick Veggies: You can buy ready chopped mixed vegetables, try to find one with an interesting combination of colours and textures.
Seasonal Swaps: You can use ANY combination of veggies here, remember to cut root veggies into smallish chunks or batons to make sure they cook in 30min. I used courgettes, peppers, red onions, butternut, beans, peas and aubergines.
Getting Ahead: The dish will benefit from being made a day or two ahead.
