Tunisian Chickpea Tangine with Root Vegetables and Apricot Rice

Spicy and rich, this is the ultimate in meat-free comfort food.  In fact, this dish was so tasty and filling that Dave didn’t even want any of the leftover grilled chicken breast that I offered to appease my ‘meatitarian’.  Don’t skip the Harissa paste, it really makes the dish an explosion of flavor!

KT’s Comments

  • This was really great on grilled shrimp;  I made the full recipe for 48 shrimp and had about half the recipe left over.
  • This is also really great on grilled corn.
  • You will want to spray the grill with non-stick spray prior to grilling as the sugar will make the food stick a bit.
  • I used ginger paste, which I found in the organic section of my grocery store rather than fresh.
  • It takes quite awhile to cook down so start it well before you start anything else.
