This is a tagine that I made yesterday. A tagine is a kind of North African stew that traditionally has meat, vegetables, and fruit in it, and is seasoned primarily with cinnamon and turmeric. I of course made a vegan tagine without any meat in it. What I did put in it was: butternut squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, parsnips, chickpeas, tomatoes, raisins, and dried Turkish apricots. I served it over couscous, as is traditional with tagines. It was very good – perhaps the best tagine I have made yet.

By the way, the butternut squash and the tomatoes I used are homegrown and were harvested last fall. The tomatoes were stewed and frozen and the butternut squash has been stored whole and at room temperature.
