Sweet potato tagine

Hello, I come bearing a recipe 🙂

Sweet potato tagine with couscous


  • Oil/Spray oil to fry
  • 1 chopped onion
  • 2 crushed garlic cloves
  • 2tsp ground coriander
  • 2tsp cumin
  • 2tsp paprika
  • 1 small aubergine cut into cubes
  • 2 small sweet potatoes peeled and cut into cubes
  • 400g can chopped tomatoes
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 small handful raisins
  • 1 small can chickpeas
  • 1 courgette cut into chunks
  • 1tbsp tomato puree

What to do:

  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan then add the onion and garlic. Fry for around 10 minutes
  2. Add the coriander, cumin and paprika and fry for 30 seconds
  3. Add the aubergine and sweet potato, stirring for 1 minute
  4. Add the tin of tomatoes, water, raisins and chickpeas. Bring to the boil then simmer for ten minutes covering the pan with a lid
  5. Add the courgette and tomato puree then simmer again for 5 minutes
  6. Tagine goes best with couscous but I guess you could have it with anything you like. Couscous is so easy to make but just in case you didn’t know… Put 50+grams in a bowl and then pour in boiling water until the couscous is just covered. Cover with a plate and leave for five minutes

Enjoy 🙂
