Three Pea Tagine with Cherry Tomatoes

These days, I don't have much energy to cook from scratch when I get in from work unless its something like pasta such as Spaghetti dish, but strangely enough I did actually make this Three Pea Tagine after work in the late evening.  

I was rather surprised that I had both the energy and the inclination.  This was one of those days, when i decided to myself that I was not going to plonk myself in front of either the computer or sofa and instead use those couple of hours a little more usefully, then laze.  Other than making couscous, grub was made and it was plenty to last us two days if not more.  
Its actually a relatively easy recipe, after sauteing the onions, garlic and spices, you could happily leave it for 40 - 45 minutes for the yellow split peas to cook in the vegetable stock, then stir in the remaining ingredients such as chickpeas, raisins, green peas, cherry tomatoes which happen to be home gown for 10 minutes and its pretty much done.  Its not like a risotto when you have to hover over it.  

This Three Pea Tagine has green peas from the freezer, chickpeas from a tin and split yellow peas from the kitchen store cupboard.  
And anyone who eats, lentils, legumes and pulses will know that they are packed full of nutrients, so I am not going to preach to the converted.  Just enjoy, this very autumnal looking bowl. I can feel myself breaking out into....all the leaves are brown.... The Mamas and the Papa's song 'California Dreamin....' Find the recipe here, bookmarked from Snackistan.

    1. Oh I know how that feels, and then I resort to oven baked chips. I'd be happy to beam you some of this bowl over.
