Veggie meal ideas – Dale Pinnock’s Moroccan Tagine

Whenever I put a picture of my vegetarian meals on social media – people always ask for recipes.

Truth is, as much as I love cooking I’m not terribly creative in the kitchen but I do have a couple of favourite cookbooks – one of them being ‘The Medicinal Chef, Healthy Every day’ by Dale Pinnock.

This week I made the one-pot Moroccan vegetable tagine recipe for the first time and it was delicious.

I did find some of the cook times a little off in the recipe – for example the courgettes needed A LOT more cooking than the book said meaning I ever so slightly burned the veggies at the bottom of the pan, but nothing I couldn’t salvage with another load of passata sauce and some water!

It made enough for both of us to have a large and then freeze two tubs worth for tonight’s dinner!  It was also fairly quick and easy and I did most of it during Noah’s nap time.

 

INGREDIENTS

Olive oil

2 large red onions

4 cloves of garlic

800g tomato passata (I used more)

16 pitted dates

2 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cumin

2 x 400g tins chickpeas

2 large red peppers

1 large aubergine

2 large courgettes

While it’s simmering – chop the peppers and aubergine

 

Add the chickpeas, peppers and aubergine and simmer for 20 minutes and stir a lot so it doesn't stick!

The last step is adding the courgettes and the recipe says to simmer for 10 minutes. I found the courgettes needed about an extra 40 minutes to soften and would recommend cooking them before adding to stew

 

Serve with cous cous and enjoy!
