Take a trip to Morocco with this week’s Health-e-Recipe for Tagine of Carrots, Potatoes and Green Olives.
A tagine is a stew that is traditionally served in a clay pot. We borrowed the idea and tested it to perfection for this easy version prepared on the stove-top.
Our blend of Middle Eastern spices – cinnamon, ginger, coriander and turmeric – has an earthy, sweet flavor that mingles nicely with the carrots, turnips and potatoes. A touch of orange flavor from the zest, along with the delectable taste of Mediterranean green olives, yields a stew that goes beautifully over whole-wheat couscous, a small round grain popular in Morocco, or brown rice if you prefer.
Altogether, it’s a delicious autumn dish that provides you with plenty of cancer-fighting fiber from the vegetables, plus vitamins and phytochemicals to protect your health.
