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. Hi, Sidesel. I haven't tried this one in the slow cooker before, but it should work. I think reducing the amount of broth a little bit would be a good idea, though. Enjoy!

  1. Delicious and the house smelled like a spice market! Made it as is with 3 minor changes (2 due to a cooking mishap). I used some honey vinegar to get some stuck bits off the bottom of the Dutch oven, added about a 1/2 cup more dried apricots to offset the vinegar, and added a teaspoon of cardamom (just because I love it). This was a great meal and made a lot - more like 8 servings. I shared this recipe with my vegan and gluten intolerant friends.

  2. Love this dish. I don’t use Harissa, not a fan of heat, but this has become a regular in our house. I added some green beans one time that needed using up and it was still just as delicious. The spices are excellent.

  3. The flavors in this dish are amazing!! I had never cooked with Harissa before and felt it was a little spicy for me, but will use less next time. I am going to add shrimp next time!! Thank you!!

  4. hi there, made this a few times and it is an all time fave . i cannot get to a store this time for apricots, can i sub apricot jam ? If i can then how much would you recommend. Thanks for a super recipe

    1. Hi, Skye. Sure, that may work. I have never tried personally, so it's hard to recommend the right amount. Maybe start will a tablespoon or two and adjust from there.

  5. My whole family loved this dish, even my husband who hates vegetables 🙄 it is now going to a regular go-to dish over the cold months ahead.

  6. Very tasty, but I found that the vegetable broth was too much …I end up cooking for a much longer time to look like in your picture. Otherwise will be like soup. Also veggie had a taste of their own didn't incorporate all together… how can I improve?

    1. Hmmm... Not being there in person to see your process, I'm not sure I can be of much help. I'm so glad you still found the recipe to be tasty!

  7. Greetings from Norway.
    Just made the tangine. It was fantastic! Next time I will make double. A perfect dish on a cold winter evening, but works totaly well in April also

  8. This was delicious! I only added about 2/3 of the broth because I didn't want the dish to be too soupy, as I was serving it over couscous. Additionally, I had to add more of the spices to enhance the flavor and I felt that diced tomatoes were better than whole tomatoes. Overall, it came out really nice. My husband even asked that we add this recipe to our regular rotation!

  9. Your videos are amazing Suzy and I love your presentation style. I have a large ceramic tagine and want to be able to use it to cook a vegetarian tagine dish in the oven, could you please give me a recipe to make it in the oven in a traditional ceramic tagine dish please? Thank You so much.

    1. Thank you so much for the kind words, Apparana! Unfortunately, I have never tried this recipe in an actual tagine, so I'm afraid I can't advise you there. If you decide to give it a try, please stop back and let us know how it turned out.

  10. I am living in Morocco with Moroccan husband. No Greek olives. Morocco has its own olive groves everywhere. No canned tomatoes. Almost everything is made from fresh produce. Vegetables must be stacked in the Tagine in the right order for everything to get done at the same time. Sweet potatoes are best added at the end, or they will be very mushy. Red or yellow peppers will greatly enhance the flavors.

  11. A great recipe. So easy, and amazingly delicious. The tagine can stand alone or be an amazing side. Don’t hesitate to try it.

  12. I made this last night and the flavor was so good, I didn't cut up the tomatoes so they took a long time to cook in the pot, almost an hour. Next time I will cut them up or use diced tomatoes. I don't normally like sweet with my savory but this meal exceeded expectations and was extremely delicious. Will definitely be making it again.

  13. Hi there, it was delicious but I have a lot left over as it was quite filling. I was wondering if the tagine is able to be frozen? And if so, how long for? Many thanks 🙂

  14. Hi Suzy, I just made this exactly as per the recipe. My friend, husband and I love it! Tomorrow my friend will take some to work for her lunch. I make lunch for her every weekday and love making your recipes.
    Always a winner in my circle of friends. Thanks for sharing!

  15. Delicious. I made it in my instant pot, so I think there was extra liquid that didn’t cook off, but it was yummy with couscous. Cooked on high for 3 minutes after sautéing the veggies. Didn’t have harissa so I used chili powder. Didn’t have apricots, so I used dates. Didn’t have sweet potato, but the dates made it sweet. Will absolutely make again, thank you! BTW, I found this searching with my browser. Every time I try to pin it, none of the pictures are available for some reason. I had to search thru Pinterest.
