Your trip to Morocco will not be completed if you missed the famous food of Moroccans, Tajine. If you are planning to travel to this amazing country, there are a lot of Moroccan foods that you can try, there are Qus Qus, and Kofta but Tajine is the most popular one. Tajine is a typical Berber dish that is easy and freezable, cooked in an earthware pot. There are different types of Tajine, the vegetable, beef, chicken, and fish, did I miss any?

During my Moroccan adventure in more than 15 cities and a Sahara trip, I tried all types of Tajine more than anyone, except chicken since I don’t eat them a lot. The price will range from 3 to 5 Euros depends on what type of Tajine you will be ordering.

Tajine

How it is made & what ingredients are needed

Traditional Tajine is cook through an earthware pot, which is now available through Amazon. This is a one-pot masterpiece in your choice of meat, or a 100 percent vegetable, with fragrant spices and olives. I recommend to cook it using a charcoal for better results.

Ingredients

2 skinless meat of choice if needed

1/2 onion, chopped

1 tablespoon olive oil

3 cloves garlic, minced

1 ( 15.5 ounces) garbanzo beans, rinsed and drained

1 carrot, peeled and chopped

1 small butter squash, peeled and chopped

1 (14.5 ounces) can diced tomatoes with juice

1 dash cayenne pepper

1 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon lemon juice

1 tablespoon sugar

1 (14 ounces) can vegetable broth

Preparations & Directions:

Cooking a Moroccan Tajine is easy and that will take 15 minutes of preparation, 45 minutes to cook, serve in an hour. I mention that this is a one spot masterpiece so let the cooking started:

  • Heat the olive oil in an earthware pot or skillet over a medium heat, cook the meat you want, garlic and onion in about 12 to 15 minutes until browned
  • Put the squash, garbanzo beans, tomatoes with juice and carrot, broth, sugar and lemon juice in a pot, season with salt, cayenne pepper, and coriander. Wait until the mixture is boiled, and cook for about 30 minutes. Check until the vegetable is tender.
