Hello hello! Welcome to a new week! I am currently writing to you from Albuquerque NM — on a work trip right meow, but! This blog train doesn’t stop because of travel! No!
Anyway…too excited about that. But if you have any tips for what I should check out while I’m here, sound off in the comments below! I’ve been to the ABQ before but only for the balloon fiesta that they have here in October, not really for work. Not that that matters….anywho…ideas. put them below.
Let’s get into this recipe that I have for ya’ll today! This Beef Tagine with butternut squash sounds fancy, but it’s really not. It’s a one pot wonder, and it takes like 30 minutes which is perfect for a weeknight meal!
This dish is so rich in flavor its crazy that it doesn’t take longer. The cinnamon and ginger really adds a warmth to the dish that is indicative of Moroccan dishes.
Just so ya’ll know, a tagine is actually a cooking vessel (see pic below) and it is used in north Africa and Morocco and this dish is traditionally cooked in one so if you happen to have one, bring it on out! If not…no sweat, just use a heavy pot.
Any who, I pair this dish with some Israeli couscous, which is a large pearl couscous that you can find in the grocery store, just to give it a starch (aside from the butternut squash, because more is more) But you can totally just have it on its own. I also love it with a bit of yogurt on top, which may not be exactly traditional, but it adds a bit of creaminess that is just so good.
It also makes great leftovers! So.Many.Great.Things! Anyway, this dish is a staple in out house and I hope it will become one in yours!
Stay tuned for a great post coming tomorrow! Happy Monday friends!
