A tagine is a Moroccan casserole dish used to maximize flavour. If you don't have a tagine a normal casserole dish works just fine. Goes well over brown rice.

I used a Dutch oven to make this, and it turned out very nicely. No changes, except I used 3 peppers, one red, one yellow and one orange. I served it with salt and pepper since I didn't think the vegetable stock powder made it salty enough. I served over white rice (cooked faster):D It's a very pretty dish too. P.S. Updated to say leftovers tasted better the next day, and 4 servings was too little. I suggest 6, with a small amount of rice.
