When you’re craving vegetables, why not venture into the realm of Moroccan cooking? This vegetable tagine is a one-pot meal that’s wholesome, nutritious, easy to make, and plant-based!

You can use any combination of vegetables you have on hand, just make sure you have a variety of colours and textures. The saffron gives this dish complex, exotic aroma, but infusing it in hot water is key. If you like a bit of spice, you can add chili flakes or any other hot spice you have on hand. Serve over fluffy couscous or rice and enjoy!


  1. In small bowl, place Farm Boy™ Spanish Saffron and top with boiling water. Set aside to infuse as you prep everything else.
  2. In large Dutch oven, add Farm Boy™ Extra Virgin Olive Oil, ginger, Farm Boy™ Garlic Flowers, Farm Boy™ Organic Cumin, Farm Boy™ Organic Ground Cinnamon, and Farm Boy™ Organic Tomato Paste. Cook for a few minutes until fragrant.
  3. Add onion, carrots, bell peppers, eggplant, butternut squash, Farm Boy™ Organic Chickpeas, saffron-infused water, salt, and pepper.
  4. Bring to a simmer, then cover and cook for 30-35 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.
  5. Add tomatoes, lemon zest and juice and continue to simmer, covered, for another 10 minutes.
