  • 1/3 cup pitted dates, halved
  • 1/3 cup mini pitted dried plums (prunes), halved

  4. Add sweet potato, tomatoes, chickpeas and 1/4 cup vegetable broth, and simmer 10 minutes.
  5. Add kale and additional cup of vegetable broth, and simmer about 5 minutes or until wilted.
  6. Add dried fruit and olives, and simmer 10 more minutes or until sweet potato is tender and flavors are married, adding an additional cup of vegetable broth if desired.

  8. Check seasoning, and add additional salt and pepper, if desired.
  9. Serve over cous-cous garnished with roasted pumpkin seeds if desired.

Notes

The word "tagine" is like "casserole" in that it can refer to both the food item and the dish in which it is cooked.
