Easy Meals #2 - Sausage Tagine

Not including spices/seasoning you can make this sausage tagine for around £8 for two people (and you'll probably get some left overs with this which perfectly fine to put it in the fridge and have it the next day) 

Estimated cooking time: 45 minutes


-  1 pepper
-  Spinach
-  1 large red onion
-  Pork Chipolatas
-  Garlic
-  Cinnamon
-  Dried apricots
-  1 tbsp flour
-  400ml chicken stock
-  Tagine Paste
-  Couscous


1.  Start preheating your oven, I normally put it on 180c.

2.  Put your chipolatas onto the roasting tray or oven dish you will be using to cook your tagine in with a little oil and put them in the oven to cook for around 10-15 minutes. While these are cooking you can chop up your red onion and peppers. Then after 10-15 minutes take the sausages out and set them aside for the moment (put them on a plate and cover to keep warm).

3.  Now spread the chopped red onion onto the tray/dish you just removed your sausages from and put it in the oven for around 10 minutes to brown off. Then sprinkle 1 tbsp of flour over the onions and put them back in the oven for 2 minutes.

4.  Now you can add everything into the tray/dish with your onions - sausages, tagine paste, 400ml of chicken stock (I used two chicken stock cubes and dissolved them in 400ml of boiling water), spinach, chopped pepper, ground cinnamon, garlic and dried apricots. Make sure everything is well mixed (especially the tagine paste and chicken stock) and let it cook in the oven for 20 minutes or 30 minutes if you prefer your peppers softer.

5.  While this is cooking you can start on the couscous. Rinse 100g couscous thoroughly in cold water and bring 150ml of water or stock to a boil in a saucepan. Add the couscous and reduce to a low heat and leave to simmer for 5 minutes until most of the water has been absorbed. Then take it off the heat and drain any excess liquid away and leave it to stand for 10 minutes.

6.  Everything should be ready now so serve up and enjoy! Remember the tagine will be hot so be careful when serving it.

Hope you enjoy and please let me know what you think!
