    Nif's Note:

    In Morocco, tajines, or stews, are made in shallow earthenware cooking pots called tajines. In this version, you use a Crock-Pot to produce a mellow yet intensely flavoured meat-and-vegetable mixture with a tender texture and enticing aroma. So, let it simmer away while you’re at work or play. See below for fun additions. From Chatelaine Magazine. Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Thaw lamb if using.Trim excess fat from lamb or beef, then cut into large bite-size pieces. If using chicken thighs, leave whole. Mince garlic and thinly slice onions. In a crock pot or other slow cooker, stir garlic with onions, cumin, paprika, ginger, cinnamon, allspice, salt, chili flakes, carrots, squash, broth and olives, if using. Add meat.

      Cover and cook on high heat for 5 hours or on low for 9 to 10 hours. Stir in chickpeas, if using, during last 15 minutes of cooking. Serve over couscous or with crusty bread.

      This was great - very flavorful. I used sweet potato rather than squash and also added some sliced celery - otherwise made as written. Crockpot on low for 7 hrs. DH was not a fan of the olives, but DS and I loved them. Made too late to count for ZWT 9!
