I got the inspiration for this recipe while living in Dubai. A Moroccan friend brought me a big, brown, hairy, mystery tuber. I didn’t know what to do with the thing so I concocted this veggie tagine. I’ve since solved the mystery and identified the tuber as a taro root and eaten countless bowls of this tasty stew! You can always use a white potato instead of the taro root if you aren’t feeling very mysterious.
Serve with roasted asparagus or a green salad on the side. Feta cheese also makes a nice accompaniment or starter for this dish.
