    Clare 'E-Foodie' Jones's Note:

    We love couscous and are always looking for new dishes to go with it. This is a lovely rich, yet light dish with gorgeous Moroccan flavors.

      This is a great tagine with perfect North African flavors. It's sweet, spicy, savory and just plain delicious. This time I served it with brown rice but it's in my future with couscous. Made for North Africa/Middle East forum's Visit to Morroco and PAC, FAll 2012.

      This was a perfect, quick and tasty tagine. I didn't have dried apricots, so I added a few more prunes. Served over quinoa.
