Butternut Squash Tagine Ingredients

One-pot curries are some of my absolute favourite meals to cook, especially during the Autumn or winter months. 

This Tagine is so quick and simple to make, all you need to do is add the ingredients into a pot and let it cook.

It will easily serve 4-5 people and will store in the fridge for 2-3 days perfect for lunch leftovers or can be frozen to have on another day.

The great thing about versatile dishes like this is that you can swap the vegetables or add extras if you wish. For example you could swap the butternut squash for sweet potato.

The base of this Tagine is vegan but you could always add extra protein if you wanted such as tofu, chicken or prawns.

I love to serve mine with brown rice or quinoa.

Butternut Squash Tagine Bowls

There is such a great balance of sweetness coming from the apricots and squash to the spices of chilli, paprika and cayenne. You can also really taste the fennel which transforms the flavour.
