Chickpea, Carrot and Date Tajine
Moroccan food is to die for. I love it for its complex mix of earthy and spicy flavours. And as for vegetarian (note: this dish is vegan and gluten-free) options - well, Moroccan food is the bomb-diggity. (Yeah I know that phrase is totally passé. Just stay with me here.) I've had tajine (also spelled tagine) before and I've tried a few different recipes. But the taste combo of rich fire-roasted tomatoes, accompanied by the earthiness of the chickpeas and carrots is divine, and then you get little traces of sweetness from the softened stewed dates.
