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

Wash produce before use


Prep the vegetables

  • Scrub the potatoes; cut the potatoes into quarters. 
  • Scrub or peel the turnip; cut the turnip in half lengthwise, then crosswise into ½-inch-thick half-moons. 
  • Scrub or peel the carrots and trim the ends; cut the carrots in half lengthwise, then on the diagonal into 2-inch lengths. 
  • Rinse the chickpeas. 


Cook the tagine

In a large sauce pot over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the potatoes, turnip, and carrots, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables start to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the tomato paste and tagine spice blend and cook until fragrant and the tomato paste is caramelized, 1 to 2 minutes. Add the chickpeas, raisins, and 1½ cups [2¼ cups] water and bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.

Working in batches if needed, stir in the spinach and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper. While the tagine is cooking, prepare the garnishes.


Prep the garnishes

  • Coarsely chop the olives, checking for any pits. 
  • Coarsely chop the almonds. 

When the tagine has finished cooking, sprinkle it with the olives and almonds. 


Set out the tagine and invite everyone to serve themselves.
