Moroccan tagines are clay or ceramic cookware that have a very unique design used in North Africa. They are earthenware pots that are painted and glazed with a distinctive conical cover.
Although they are originally referred to as a tagine pot in which the dish is cooked, in Arabic, tagine means stew. Now tagine can refer to the dish, as well as, a type of stew. Tagines are generally spicy and have some type of protein incorporated. Vegetarians of course can eliminate the meat option. I have made this dish vegetarian.
