Meatballs couscous

Meatballs couscous

I became quite obsessed with cooking in my new tajine. It simple, everything you cook in that plate is instantly crazy delicious. And this recipe is no different. I basically used the same base as with my chicken tajine, using, this time, home-made meatballs, a tomato stew and dress it up with couscous. The result is quite indulgent, but it's Saturday after all, so why bother.

    In a separate pan: brown your onions with the mix of spices. Add a little bit of water to incorporate all the spices. Add the mix to your tajine once the meatballs are browned on the outside (but not completely cooked) and the minced garlic.

    Add the canned tomatoes with a glass of water and the chicken stock. Then add all your sliced or minced veggies (the turnip is quite long to cook, so you can pre-cook it in salted water when you are preparing and cooking your meatballs).

    Leave it to simmer for 30 minutes. Add salt and pepper and chopped cilantro.

    Prepare your couscous. With the boiling water, you used to cook your turnip, pour your liquid over the semolina one glass at a time. Add a little bit of olive oil so that your semolina doesn't stick. Cover with a plate and leave it to rest. You can flavor your couscous with a bit of harissa and the zest of a lemon.

  6. Change

    Dress your plate with the couscous, your tagine, the pistachios, few leaves of cilantro, kefir yogurt and more lemon zest. Enjoy !
