A Vibrant Antidote to the Winter Blahs
Moroccan stews (aka tagines) are traditionally cooked in cone-shaped tagine pots, but you can easily re-create the steamy environment in a slow cooker. The region's rich and colorful spirit comes across in this sweet veggie stew, which incorporates butternut squash, rutabaga, carrot and apricot. It looks fantastic on the plate, and makes for a surprisingly satisfying meal served with couscous.
