Tajine Cooking a la Sultana Spa

21 Jan

A tajine is a pot used in moroccan cooking, it sort of looks like a teepee. A flat dish with a triangular lid on top. It’s a beautiful table centerpiece and serving dish in one. And best of all, it’s a super healthy way to cook. Simply pop ingredients onto plate of tajine, cook for around 1.5 hours over low heat & voila!

Use the Tajine recipe from http://www.grouprecipes.com below as a guideline, but feel free to change the meat, spices, veg to your faves!

We really like the Cherry Moroccan tajine by Le Creuset available at Sur La Table
