Sweet Potato and Pomegranate Tagine

Sweet Potato and Pomegranate Tagine

Serves 6

Fennel and celery balance the richness of sweet potatoes in this dish, which is best served immediately as the sweet potato pieces may lose their shape if reheated.
  • 3 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 1 large fennel bulb, quartered, cored, and sliced
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 stalks celery, sliced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, minced
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped (1 tsp.)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbs. ras el hanout
  • 1 cup low-sodium vegetable broth
  • 1 cup fresh or thawed frozen pomegranate seeds
  • ½ cup chopped fresh mint

1. Combine sweet potatoes, fennel, carrots, celery, onion, and garlic in 3.5-qt. tagine or Dutch oven. Stir in oil and ras el hanout, and season with salt, if desired. Pour in broth.

2. Place in cold oven, adjust heat to 300°F, and cook 2 1/2 hours, or until vegetables are cooked through, stirring every 45 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, if desired.

3. Transfer to wide and shallow serving dish if using Dutch oven. Sprinkle with pomegranate seeds and mint.

By the way, tagines are just as often cooked on a stovetop, you don't need to put them in the oven.

There are several recipes for ras el hanout online. If you can pick up 'the moroccan cookbook' it is well worth the investment and it has three very good recipes for it. As said, without ras el hanout any tangine will be fairly standard fare, ras el hanout puts it into a whole other level.

If using a tangine can you cook on stove top? Will it hold a cup of the vegetable broth?

Can this be made without the oil, maybe adding more broth? Non SOS vegans use no oil. It is too highly processed for a plant based whole food diet.
