Strictly speaking, tagine is the name for the unique conical cooking pot used in Morocco but it’s become known as the generic name for a gently spiced slow-cooked stew often sweetened with dried fruit or honey. The balance between the sweetness of the fruits or honey and fragrance of the spices is a key element of refined Moroccan cooking and here the mix includes coriander, paprika, allspice, cassia and cardamon.

Strictly speaking, tagine is the name for the unique conical cooking pot used in Morocco but it’s become known as the generic name for a gently spiced slow-cooked stew often sweetened with dried fruit or honey. The balance between the sweetness of the fruits or honey and fragrance of the spices is a key element of refined Moroccan cooking and here the mix includes coriander, paprika, allspice, cassia and cardamon.

USES: Obviously great for tagines, but also try on roasted veg!

INGREDIENTS: Allspice, cardamon, cassia, coriander, paprika, turmeric, chilli flakes

Allergens are listed in CAPITALS. May contain traces of celery, sesame and mustard

1 portion = 2 tbsp

Recipe:

You Need:
600g diced lamb or chicken or root veg - cut into large chunks
1 large onion - thinly sliced
4 cloves garlic - finely chopped
1 carrot - peeled and thickly sliced
400g tin chopped tomatoes
A handful of dried fruit - raisins, dates or apricots or use 1 tbsp honey if you prefer
Rice or cous cous to serve

Method:
1) Fry the lamb, onion, garlic and carrot in 2 tbsp oil for 10 minutes or until the onion is soft and the lamb is just beginning to brown around the edges
2) Stir in the TAGINE SPICES, 1 tsp salt, tomatoes, the dried fruit and 200ml water then cover and simmer for 50 minutes or until the sauce is rich and thick (chicken will take a bit less time)
3) Cook the rice or cous cous now
4) Serve the tagine with rice or cous cous on the side

Had a girls night in last night and used the free tagine blend sample in my recently received spice box to create this amazing dish. Presenting kofta tagine (vegetarian) with couscous and chickpea salad. The spices were harmoniously balanced and the tagine was gorgeous! I can't wait to eat my leftovers today

I received this spice mix in my very first box as a free sample. I followed the Moroccan Tagine recipe card and chose to use chicken instead of lamb in the dish and I served it with couscous. It was super easy and totally delicious. Left-overs for lunch have never been so exciting!

This looks scrumptious- that's great you had some left over for lunch too, thanks for sharing and happy spicing!

I made a lamb tagine with the free sample that came and it was delicious! For the sweetness I added sultanas which went with the lamb really well. We were given a 3 month subscription for Xmas so I'm really looking forward to trying out all the other recipes that come! Thank-you!

Oh wow, this blend is so good! This is hands down the best tagine blend I have ever used. Your recipe card was easy to follow and helped produce a delicious and authentic lamb tagine.

So glad you enjoyed the tagine, it's one of our favourites here too and makes a really nice veggie/vegan version as well!

This was the extra spice sachet in my first box, it was for a tagine which I’ve never made before. Made it with quorn chicken pieces, courgette, carrots and added apricots and sultanas as the sweet options. Served it with cous cous- it was delicious!!!

I was quite impressed with this freebie! I made a sweet tasting curry, with again, a burst of flavours. My first time using dried fruit in a curry. Will certainly do so again! Very easy to make too.

Amazing set of tagine spices! I was very excited to receive a free sample with my spice box and decided to cook up a lamb and apricot tagine. It was easy to make and used only one pan (plus one for rice- if you choose). It was absolutely delicious!

Annabel Kimberley View More

Looks delicious and only a couple of pans to wash up- it's a win-win all round!

Oops, it’s all gone! Deliciously warming and we went all out on a Greek style feast with halloumi, falafels and home made pitta. Added extra dried apricots and went with lamb - a great flavour together.
