First (of many) tagine success!

After reading many tagine recipes, I used a recipe at Vegetarian Times as a base. What I learned is that I can use tagines to empty my fridge, I just need the right mix of vegetables, spice, sweet and savory.

This is what I started with.

I didn’t have raisins, but I had dried apricot for the sweet. The olives had blue cheese in them, but I pulled that out. I’m missing saffron, which I understand is important, and my ginger and cinnamon were ground. I didn’t have parsley either.

Regardless of what I was missing, I call this a success! I didn’t make any bread, so I ate it over couscous.

And there is enough leftover for lunch tomorrow!

I also made homemade hummus from dried garbanzo beans. I made way too much. And it needs a little something, I just need to figure out what.

    • I added what I thought was a lot of cumin, but I am missing tahini. I didn’t have Anya’s home. Some recipes said I could do without it, but I see it is important.
