Spiced Vegetable and Chickpea “Tagine” with Couscous & Mango Chutney
A tagine is a hearty, healthful stew served over couscous that originated in the Moroccan part of the Mediterranean. The word tagine refers to both the dish and the traditional conical vessel in which it is prepared, although a good skillet with a lid works well too. The key to a tagine’s flavor is a generous seasoning of aromatic spices- we use a blend of garam masala, turmeric and coriander in the recipe. A dollop of chutney brings bold, tangy flavor and a bit of sweetness for balance, while a bed of tender couscous soaks up every drop of the fragrant broth.
