Chickpea and Vegetable Tagine

Did you know that today is National Eat Your Veggies Day?

I enjoy veggies so most meals include them and sometimes they’re even the star of the show.  Like last night.

Chickpea and Vegetable Tagine is loaded with veggies.

It’s also loaded with bold spices.

I adore the deep flavors of turmeric, cinnamon, coriander seed and cumin (not pictured) and the smell is so inviting.

Moroccan tagines are stews that are rich in flavor thanks to the “exotic” spices.  This particular dish is vegetarian and the vegetables are easily adaptable to what you have on hand.

Our garden is still cranking out zucchini so I was happy to use up some of that along with heirloom baby tomatoes and onion.

The tagine was served over a bed of quinoa for some extra protein and nuttiness.

I loved the flavors and textures in this dinner.  And even though we had a zucchini-based dish last night, I haven’t gotten tired of zucchini thanks to the different flavor profiles:  Italian vs. Moroccan.

What vegetables are you going to eat today?
