Think of Moroccan tagine as a succulent, slowly simmered stew. Similar to this Moroccan Lamb Stew, the balance of sweet and savory flavors, coupled with the intensity of spices set this vegetable tagine apart from your average stew.

This easy Moroccan vegetable tagine begins with a few humble ingredients, you probably already have: potatoes, carrots, onions, and garlic.

A heaping portion of chopped dried apricots, is what provides the subtle sweetness in this hearty vegetable tagine. And to balance it off, tangy tomatoes, and a splash of lemon juice (which is added at the very end to wake everything up).

The main spice used in this easy vegetable tagine recipe is a new favorite in our shop: Harissa (pronounced: ha-REE-sah). An all-natural unique blend of three types of chili, along with sumac, caraway, fennel and more! To play up the depth and warmth of harissa spice, I added a little cinnamon, coriander, and a touch of turmeric.

Traditionally, tagine is cooked in a clay (or ceramic) pot like this one, wide at the bottom and topped with a narrow, cone-shaped cover. But in this modern improvisation, I simply used my Dutch Oven.

  1. Used a tagine dish and this recipe was far to large for it. It was okay flavor wise but portions are crazy next time I am cutting it in half

    1. Hello! This recipe was actually written for a dutch oven or similar pot (around 5 qts), as more people have those than tagines.

  2. Do you have cooking directions for those of us fortunate to own a tagine? My son brought me one back from Morocco, and I love using it. I tried using your recipe and following some basic tagine cooking directions I found elsewhere, but if you have a "pre-modification" version (perhaps with slightly smaller portions) I'd love to try that.

    1. Hi, Steve! I actually don't own a tagine, so, unfortunately, I can't give you accurate information on how to use one for this particular recipe. I'm sure it's possible, though! If you give it a try, I'd love to hear any feedback!

  3. Oh my word. I have never had Tagine before and now I think I’m in love….seriously delicious flavor combinations. Thank you, Suzy for sharing. Your creativity keeps me coming back for more!

  4. Thank you for this recipe. I received a lovely tagine as a holiday gift, and have finally gotten brave enough to use it. I wanted the chickpeas to cook with the vegetables and spices, so i added soaked, not cooked, chickpeas. Everything barely fit innthe pan, and cooked together nicely. I was unsure about adding lemon at the end, but it worked so well. This was a Delicious dinner.

  5. What can I substitute for chickpeas in recipes? I just don’t care for them. It’s a textural thing as I love hummus.

  6. I am new to cooking with a tagine; mine is a Kook brand with a cast-iron base and ceramic top. Your recipe is my 1st fully-vegetable tagine. Neither your recipe nor my tagine mentions capacity, The problem? The ingredients do not fit in my tagine! Well, the vegetables do, but only about 1 1/2 cups of broth & 1 can of tomatoes. I'll have to move the ingredients to my soup pot to add the other can of tomatoes, chickpeas, and remaining broth - which, unfortunately contains some of the spices. If tagines come in various sizes, please state the needed size for your recipe. Thanks.

    1. Hi, Janet. I actually use a dutch oven or similar pot (around 5 qts) for my version as more people have those than tagines.

  7. Made this several times already so at this point I sort of wing it. I typically skip the sweet potato and add mushrooms, bell peppers, zucchini and yellow squash (any combo depending on what is on hand). I typically add a little more cinnamon and up the harissa (mine is from a local store and not very spicy). I also play around with the amount of broth and typically I add less than a quart (I like this stew to be thick), but the amount varies depending on the volume of all the vegetables, and I skip the olive oil drizzle at the end.

    Solid choice for getting all your vegetables in, and the stew keeps and reheats extremely well for a week (just finished leftovers from exactly a week ago). Thank you, Suzy!

  8. This is a great recipe! Made it pretty much as written with these changes- Used 1 tsp supermarket Harissa because wife doesn't like too spicy. Used 2 cans diced tomatoes because it seemed easier. Added 1/2 cup red lentils with the broth, tomatoes & apricots because some of the comments said it sometimes came out thin. Red lentils are a great way to thicken soups and stews without changing the flavor too much. It came out as shown in the pictures. I also stirred it quite a bit near the end and it seemed like that helped it to thicken. I am wondering if the apricots help that by releasing pectin or other polysaccharides.

  9. This dish is delicious. Both my husband and I loved it. I will be making it again.
    It took me 1 hour and 35 minutes to prep and cook. My peeling and chopping skills are not at a professional level. 🙂

  10. I’ve been looking for a recipe like this, and I can’t wait to try it! I have Harissa paste - can I use that in place of the spice blend?

  11. My mum is having heart issues. I have been cooking her Mediterranean food per the doctor. I randomly found your website and I have made soooo many of your dishes for her over the last month. This one has been her favorite 🙂 thank you for the time, effort, and love you put into each of your recipes. They are easy to follow and have made a huge impact in our lives. Thank you!

  12. This was delicious! I didn't have enough potatoes on hand so I added some butternut squash to it. Since I didn't have your harissa spice blend I had another one that was very similar except it had hot pepper in it. When serving, I added dollops of fresh plain yogurt which was a perfect addition to the stew.

  13. I made this with some modifications. One diner has an allium allergy and another is allergic to cumin. So I made three different versions of this to suit the three diners that enjoyed this, I used a cross between this recap and one I found by Liz Moody. I couldn’t find white potatoes - go figure!- so I just used a large sweet potato and a home made harissa and a package of Tempeh cubed . The directions by Liz, include InstantPot times which worked perfectly and allowed me to make three different versions in less than 1 hour. A version that accommodated all three diners! Thanks for a great recipe!
