Recipe and Photo by The Roasted Root. Adapted for Intervale Food Hub Members

A tagine is the name for both a type of pot used for cooking, and the final dish that's traditionally made in that pot. You can make this recipe using a stew pot!

  • 1 medium-sized yellow onion, diced
  • 1 cup medium-sized sweet potato chopped into 1/2” cubes

  • 1 cup vegetable broth, separated
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 can garbanzo beans drained
  • 1 cup rice (uncooked)
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 can diced tomatoes (if you don't have this on hand, you can omit this ingredient. Add for a more stew-like final dish)

Spices: (Use all, or just the ones you have on hand at home)

  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 teaspoons ground coriander
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • ¼ teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
