This recipe really is the epitome of slow cooked love!
A little time & patience will definitely yield a deeply layered & flavor packed dish perfect for sharing on a chilly evening.
A traditional Tagine is a real beauty when placed in the middle of your dinner table for serving
but any baking dish will work just fine for this savory spiced Moroccan delight.
I love this one all on it's own but topping quinoa with it works great also.
