I created this to use up some sweet potatoes and couscous I had left over, and I’m not really sure what to call it – I’ve gone for ‘stew’ but someone walked in just when I was finishing and said, “Oh, a tagine!” so who knows…
Ingredients (2 portions):
1 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, finely chopped or crushed
2 tsp cumin seeds; if I made this again I think a little cinamon would work well, but I didn’t have any to hand
1 sweet potato, chopped into cubes of roughly 1cm
Half a can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1 can tomatoes
A small handful of raisins
A handful of spinach
– Heat the oil in a small saucepan, and fry the onion and cumin, adding the garlic once the onion is nearly softened.
– Once the onion is softened, add the sweet potato, chickpeas and tomatoes.
– Bring to the boil, cover and simmer until the sweet potato is cooked, around 25-30 minutes.
– Stir in the raisins and add the spinach – don’t stir it in, just leave it on top, cover, and let it wilt for 3-4 minutes.
– Serve with couscous.
