Vegetable Moroccan Tagine

Originally a North African Berber dish, the tagine is a wonderful celebration of spices that’s sure to make your palate sing. This might not be like anything you've eaten before. The slight sweetness from the dried apricot adds an interesting twist of flavour and texture. Serve with fluffy couscous, and for an authentic experience brew some Tuareg tea to go with it!
