The winter vegetables include: carrots, mushrooms, parsnips, turnip aka swede, new potatoes and some dates which melted into the thick sauce. To finish off some nutty chickpeas and harissa.
D said this is perhaps one of the best Tagines I have ever made and that is high praise indeed as I have made many in the past. I have to agree with him and I am not that into sweet root vegetables either, but here I was totally swayed. I think the slow cooking benefited the dish big time as the flavours infused the vegetables. Its best to serve this Tagine with couscous, but I didn't have any at home, so it was served with Basmati rice - twice!
I have absolutely no doubt that Sarah Beattie would be gracious and grant me permission to share the recipe for this Winter Vegetable Tagine on my blog, but the cookbook: Meat Free Any Day is reasonably priced, not like those glossy hardback coffee table cookbooks. This is one cookbook you will use if your a down to earth home cook like me, as its real proper food that you really want to eat. You can find the full recipe in Sarah Beattie Author of Meat-Free Any Day: Food For All Reasons. Check out Sarah Beatties Facebook Page too. I sharing this with Cook Once, Eat Twice hosted by Searching For Spice.
