Instructions

2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the ingredients

  • Peel and thinly slice the onion.
  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots crosswise into 2-inch lengths, cutting the thicker pieces in half lengthwise.
  • Cut the dried plums into quarters, checking for any pits.
  • Coarsely chop the artichokes.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves for garnish.

2

Prep and cook the lamb

  • Cut a small corner from the ground lamb packaging and drain off any excess liquid. Transfer to a plate; pat dry with a paper towel.
In a large sauce pot or frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the lamb, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring to break up the meat, until lightly browned but not yet cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Do not clean the pan.

3

Cook the tagine

In the same pot used for the lamb, add the onion and carrots, season with salt and pepper, and cook over medium-high heat, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften 3 to 4 minutes. Add the tagine spice blend and tomato sauce base and cook, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, until the tomato juices start to caramelize, 2 to 3 minutes.
Add the lamb, dried plums, vegetable broth, and 1 cup [1½ cups] water, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the lamb is cooked through and the sauce is thickened slightly, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat, stir in the artichokes, and season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve

Garnish the tagine with the parsley, set the tagine on the table, and let everyone serve themselves.
