Vegetable tagine

Plenty of complementary benefits come together in this recipe: complex carbohydrates from the chick peas, vitamins from the other vegetables and a high fibre content. Follow the same principle to make a whole range of different kinds of tagine as they do in Morocco.

Ingredients (serves 4):


  • Brown the onions in a spoonful of olive oil in a large casserole dish.
  • Season with salt and add the sugar.
  • Add the carrot slices and leave to brown gently for 10 minutes.
  • Drain and rinse the chick peas.
  • Add the sliced leeks, tomatoes and prunes.
  • Season well and leave to cook for 15 minutes.
  • Add the chick peas and leave on the heat for another 5 minutes. Serve hot.

Add a few dried tomatoes in oil for even more flavour.
