      A very nice recipe. Makes a lot of food. Served on a bed of quinoa. I added extra spice.

      This was very delicious. A nice, healthy dinner with a lot of protein! I followed the recipe pretty closely and we both enjoyed it.

      This was very, very good. I made it in my tagine cooker and it was so easy. Cooking time was a bit longer than posted. I was afraid the veggies would be mushy, but they were not. They were still a bit crisp, just perfect. I didn't have za'atar spice, but I found a recipe for the mix and made my own. I just happened to have ground sumac in my spice cupboard. What a great spice for this tagine! I made no changes. It didn't need any.
