      I went back and forth on the number of stars and finally decided that five was truly the right number. The flavor of this tagine is brilliant and it is very simple to prepare. My hesitation involves small issues easily rectified. First, while there are tomatoes in the instructions, they do not appear on the ingredient list. I threw in about a cup of halved grape tomatoes. Second, the flavors are very intense and I believe the amount of chickpeas called for is inadequate--the blandness and the particular texture of the chickpeas is needed to balance against the peppers, preserved lemon and coriander. I added a second can of chickpeas to my cooked tagine and let it simmer a bit longer and it was perfect. My only other changes were simply matters of personal preferance -- I cut down considerably on the amount of olive oil and used only one (very hot!) chili in the chili paste. I'm sitting here sampling it now--it is SO good. Thanks, English Rose! BTW, I used French Tart's Preserved Fresh Lemons.

      I made this for dinner last night and it came out great! It was even better for lunch today too. I used 2 cans of Chick Peas and added some ground coriander, and only half of the cilantro. I also was out of preserved lemon so I faked it by simmering 2 lemons quartered in a couple cups of water with 1/4 cup of salt for about 30 minutes. The flavor wasn't spot on, but it works in a pinch. Thanks for the recipe!
