Read more

A tagine is traditionally a slow-cooked Moroccan dish, bursting with flavour and delightful aromas. Well, we've kept the flavour and fragrance, but made it speedier for you to enjoy sooner. Bask in a combination of fluffy couscous, sweetly spiced chickpeas and a fresh herbed yoghurt topping and you too will think of a tagine as a surprising weeknight staple.

Keep an eye out...Due to sourcing challenges over the Christmas period, some of the fresh ingredients you receive may be different to what’s pictured. Don’t worry, your recipe will be just as delicious!

Preheat the oven to 220°C/200°C fan-forced. Cut the carrot (unpeeled) into 1cm half-moons. Cut the cauliflower into small florets. Cut the parsnip (unpeeled) into 2cm chunks. Place the veggies on an oven tray lined with baking paper. Drizzle with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Toss to coat, then roast until tender, 25-30 minutes. TIP: Cut the veggies to size so they cook in time.


While the veggies are roasting, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Add the slivered almonds and toast, tossing, until golden, 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a bowl. Finely chop the garlic and brown onion. Roughly chop the salad leaves. Cut the lemon in half. Thinly slice the herbs. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.


In a medium saucepan, add the water (for the couscous) and a generous pinch of salt. Bring to the boil, then add the couscous and a drizzle of olive oil. Stir to combine, cover with a lid and remove from the heat. Set aside until all the water has absorbed, 5 minutes. Fluff the couscous up with a fork and stir through the salad leaves. Set aside.


When the veggies have 10 minutes cook time remaining, return the frying pan to a medium-high heat with a drizzle of olive oil. Cook the onion, stirring, until softened, 4-5 minutes. Add the garlic and chermoula spice blend and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1-2 minutes.


While the onion is cooking, combine the Greek-style yoghurt and herbs in a small bowl, then season with salt and pepper. Reduce the frying pan to a medium heat, then add the chickpeas, diced dried dates (see ingredients), chopped tomatoes, water (for the sauce) and vegetable stock powder. Stir to combine and simmer until slightly reduced, 2-3 minutes. Add the roasted veggies and a good squeeze of lemon juice to the tagine, then stir to combine. Season to taste.


Divide the couscous between bowls. Top with the roast veggie, chickpea and date tagine. Drizzle with the herbed yoghurt. Sprinkle over the toasted almonds.
