Beef Tagine With Roasted Cauliflower

Sundays on Nantucket are made for slow cooked rides...exploring new trails...and picking wild daffodils on Nantucket! I love preparing these kind of recipes on the weekend, so then you can spend the rest of the day doing chores, exploring the island, or just sitting on the coach relaxing. It is the weekend, you can do whatever you want!

This past Sunday Supper did not disappoint and it is my favorite Moroccan recipe thus far. This is the second time I have made this dish and it is DELICIOUS, hearty, and good for you. Do not let the list of ingredients intimidate you...It is really very simple and most importantly it is made with real ingredients. This Moroccan meal is loaded with flavor. It is hearty. And it is the perfect way to end a weekend. Oh and it makes the house smell AMAZING! This recipe is from The Food Of Morocco...I hope that you will give it a try...ENJOY!
