The Side That Makes Spiced Dishes Shine
Show up to a potluck with this colorful vegetable tagine and you're sure to elicit oohs and aahs—it's impossible not to be drawn to its gorgeous orange hue. Luckily, it's just as tasty as it looks, with chunks of carrot, rutabaga and butternut squash softening to a perfectly toothsome texture, and the addition of dried apricots, fresh ginger and spices (cumin, cinnamon, cayenne) giving the dish a sweet-spicy tone that would be delightful with any Middle Eastern or Indian spread.
