Instructions

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

Wash produce before use

1

Prep the vegetables

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

2

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 turnips, potatoes, and carrots, season with salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting 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. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes.
Working in batches if needed, stir in the greens and cook until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and season to taste with salt and pepper.
While the tagine cooks, prepare the garnishes.

3

Prep the garnishes

  • Coarsely chop the almonds.
  • Coarsely chop the olives.
  • Remove any pulp from the preserved lemon; thinly slice the peel.
  • Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
When the tagine has finished cooking, sprinkle it with the almonds, olives, lemon, and parsley.
