Want to try a delicious vegetarian dish for the family packed with flavour? This butternut and chickpea tagine recipe will satisfy any palate, even someone who loves to enjoy meat.

A tagine is a Berber dish named after the earthenware pot in which it is cooked. This pot has a base that is wider than its tall, cone-shaped top. However, if you do not have a tagine, the good news is that you can still prepare this recipe. Simply use a Dutch oven or another lidded pot instead, just make sure the lid fits tightly. The best thing about this butternut and chickpea tagine is that the pot seals in all of the flavours creating delicious moisture from the sauce and veggies.

For those of us who love a bit of meatiness to any dish, mushrooms are included. The umami flavour and meat-like texture of mushrooms make this dish a taste experience. Finally, the added chickpeas add an explosion of vitamins and goodness to this dish. Enjoy this recipe from “What’s for dinner?”
