Moroccan Vegetable Tagine with Lemon Couscous

Serves 4
Time 40 min
Named after the vessels they're traditionally cooked in, tagines often feature cuts of meat that are stewed for a long time. This version is vegetable-based and cooks quite quickly. Its warm flavors pair wonderfully with a quick tart lemon couscous. Inspired by Whole Planet Foundation® microcredit client recipes.

Method

Combine cumin, ginger, turmeric, salt, cinnamon and pepper. Set aside.

In a large high-sided skillet, heat oil over medium. 

Add onion and garlic; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until golden and tender. 

Stir in spice mixture and tomato paste and cook 1 minute, stirring. 

Stir in broth, potatoes, tomatoes and their juice, beans and raisins. Bring to a boil. 

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, covered, about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender and sauce is thickened.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, bring 1 1/2 cups water, lemon juice and zest to a boil. Remove from heat.

Stir in couscous. 

Cover and let sit 5 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Fluff with a fork. Serve with tagine and garnish with parsley.
