Notes
tagineWhat is a Tagine: A tagine is a unique type of ceramic or clay cookware that's popular in North Africa. The bottom is a wide, circular shallow dish used for both cooking and serving, while the top of the tagine is distinctively shaped into a rounded dome or cone.
The word "tagine" also refers to the succulent dish which is slow-cooked inside the cooking vessel. Typically, a tagine is a rich stew of meat, chicken, or fish, and most often includes vegetables or fruit. Vegetables can also be cooked alone.
Don’t have a Tagine a Dutch oven or clay cooker works just as well.
