Moroccan Vegetable Tagine (slow cooker)

I found this recipe on mumsnet & it reminded me that I need to try & find the recipe for a tagine DH & I used to eat *all* the time years ago!

It was easy enough to make, & was ok, but not great. Perhaps it would have been better if I’d added some Harrissa paste (none in the cupboard) or cooker it on the hob, rather than in the slow cooker?

DD1 (3.11) basically refused to eat anything other than the couscous – she tried the chickpeas & the sweet potatoes, but said they tasted yukky 😦  DD2 (1.5) ate most of it, but didn’t seem that keen.


  • 200g carrots
  • 200g potatoes
  • 200g sweet potatoes
  • 200g courgettes
  • 200g onions
  • 1 tin chickpeas
  • 50g dried apricots (chopped)
  • 50g raisins
  • 1 tin tomatoes
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 bunch coriander (finely chopped)
  • Harissa paste, to taste

To serve:

  • Couscous


  1. Chop all the veg up into big chunks, put them in the slow cooker with the chickpeas, dried spices, dried fruit and two cups of water.
  2. Mix well, then spread the tin of chopped tomatoes over the top.
  3. Cook for some time on hot (I think I left it on for about 5hrs)
  4. When all the veg are cooked through and the sauce is thick and bubbling, add the chopped coriander and serve with couscous.
