Moroccan Chickpea Tagine with Tomatoes


Moroccan Chickpea Tagine with Tomatoes is one of my favorite recipes that I picked up on my travels in North Africa. Tagine is a typical Morrocan stew that is cooked in a clay pot of the same name. Most tagines consist of a rich mixture of meat, poultry, or fish and include vegetables or fruit. This one is vegetarian with chickpeas to bulk it up.

To make this tagine, start by sauteing onion, garlic and dried spices. Next, add the tomato passata, chopped tomatoes, water, salt, and sugar, and cook for 20 minutes. Add cooked chickpeas and continue cooking until the mixtмупure is thick and the sauce has turned a dark shade of red. Right before serving, add fresh parsley and cilantro. Serve this flavorsome dish immediately with a drizzle of olive oil.
