There's a new dish on taster in our shops in honour of Meat Free May: a lovely veggie tagine.
“You can’t go wrong with a tagine, and this vegetarian version is one of my absolute favourites. It gets its signature flavour from a delicate blend of spices, a lovely mix of roasted yellow and green peppers, aubergine and chickpeas, and a hint of natural sweetness care of some dried apricots, honey and a little orange juice. The secret to getting the spicing right is that we simmer them with chopped tomatoes for around 30 minutes so they really develop. Try it with some flatbreads – delicious!”
Try It With...
For a simple supper all you need is some of our Minted Couscous or, if you want to keep it gluten free, plain rice. Then add a little freshly chopped coriander on top to give it some freshness.
Next time you’re hosting, why not try a Moroccan themed dinner? Add this to the selection of tagines and our other Moroccan-inspired dishes, and serve with couscous and flatbreads (which are easy enough to make at home). Then liven up your table with some little bowls of pomegranate seeds, natural yoghurt, preserved lemons, chopped coriander and toasted flaked almonds.
