This is my husband's favorite tagine. The main ingredients consist of onion, tomatoes, olives, & potatoes. Serve with Authentic Moroccan Bread to scoop up the sauce.
- 1 onion, cut into strips
- 14 ounces canned diced tomatoes, drain juice
- 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro, finely chopped
- 1⁄3 cup oil, equal parts canola & olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, chopped
- 1 beef bouillon cube
- 1 teaspoon paprika
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ginger
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 cup water
- 1⁄2 cup green olives, cracked
- 1⁄2 preserved lemon, sliced with the flesh (Moroccan Spiced Preserved Lemons)
- 2 -3 medium potatoes, cut into large pieces
- Heat half the oil in a tagine over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, parsley, & cilantro to the oil. Cook the onion & herbs for 5 minutes.
- Add the bouillon cube, spices, tomato, & the rest of the oil to the onion mixture & continue to cook on low heat for 10 minutes.
- Before adding the potatoes sprinkle them with paprika & pepper. Then place the water, potatoes, olives, & lemon into the tagine. Cover & cook over low heat for 1 hour.
Absolute hit! Potato-hating DH loved it and demands to have it very often. It was even better next day. I have also served it to our vegetarian friends and they all loved it. With with home-made focaccia (with za'atar) and some salads it was a complete meal. Thanks.
Outstanding Tagine Recipe! This was so delicious that I could of eaten the whole thing. The sauce was so yummy and it had just the right amount of spice in it. The only thing I changed was I used vegetable bouillon cube and left out the salt because there was enough in the preserved lemons and olives. Thank you Nasseh
