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.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. 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.
  2. Add the bouillon cube, spices, tomato, & the rest of the oil to the onion mixture & continue to cook on low heat for 10 minutes.
  3. 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
