READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Leisa loves to cook

I dated a guy from Morocco and he cooked this for me often. Didn't work out, but I still love the recipe none the less. I hope you enjoy! You can buy "Tagine" spices in specialty food stores. These are from Morocco and I suggest that you have them on hand as they go great with lots of other meats, especially lamb. You can use the "Tagine" spice mixture (approx. 1 1/2-2 T and just add the saffron or you can use the spices below as noted to create your own "Tagine" spice mixture.

Good comfort food. Served on a bed of quinoa. I added red pepper flakes and it still maintained it's good, subtle flavor.
