  • Fall Vegetable Tagine over Couscous
    A simple and quick vegetarian version of Moroccan tagine. The combination of fall vegetables like yams with sweet dried apricots and warming exotic spices makes this dish perfect for cold weather. The tagine is served over couscous, a grain dish made from semolina wheat, a staple food of North Africa that was developed by some of the first inhabitants of Morocco, the Berbers. Look for whole wheat couscous at the market for a less refined dish. butter or olive oilsmoked paprikaras-al-hanoutground gingerblack peppercayenne peppersaffrononioncinnamon stickscarrotsgarlicvegetable stockgreen beanscauliflowerpeastomatoesdried Turkish apricotssweet potatoeswhole wheat couscousolive oilcilantrolemon juicesea salttoasted pistachios
