Yummy Vegetable Moroccan Tagine With Freekeh

Vegetable Moroccan Tagine

Our Vegetable Tagine is a Moroccan-inspired dish that is loaded with aromatic flavours, that leaves a wonderful cardamom & chili after taste, it's a perfect partner for stewed veggies. Healthy and delicious it's also super quick and convenient to make your midweek 'Exotic' night.

You can create your own exotic version using different veggie combinations (eggplant or sweet potato etc), dried fruit, preserved lemon & garnish.

Serve with either freekeh, bulgur, rice, or the traditional couscous. That's the best thing about Tagine, you play around with the flavours based on what you have in your fridage and in your pantry :)
