Moroccan Chickpea Vegetable Tagine
The dish is a step ahead from the traditional approach in our food choices. This plant-based whole-grain dish is also vegan, which solves two problems in a single blow. Important information- tagine is a piece of bakeware that is essential to prepare the dish.
Generally, a Moroccan dish is known to have cold salads for starters, which are then followed by couscous and tagine garnished with vegetables or meat with the fruit dessert at the end. The dish comes close to Indian food items as it is filled with similar ingredients like coriander, cumin, ginger, cardamom, etc. You can also use any type of dry fruit like dates, raisins and dried apricots whereas olives also work fine.
The stew should be prepared in a large pot on the stovetop, but first, you will have to sauté garlic and onion alongside some vegetable broth. Now, add the tomatoes, spices, tomato paste, and enough water vegetables to cover the dish. The process can be completed way before the actual preparation as it saves a lot of time.
Afterward, you must put everything in the ceramic tagine and put it into the oven till it bakes in 45 minutes and the vegetables become tender.
