طجين القُوقْ وْ الجَّلْباَنة/Green Tagine!Moroccan Stew with Beef, Artichoke and Peas/Tajine Vert! Tajine Marocain aux Petits Pois et Artichauts!


This is a classic recipe of artichoke and peas with beef, all flavoured with saffron and ginger. It is a very popular dish with the perfect combination of flavour and vegetables.  Thankfully, in Morocco, fresh artichokes are quite affordable and costs less than one sterling per/kilo.

Artichoke has always put me off from making this dish, but when I think of my mum's delicious artichoke tagine, it makes me rethink. Artichokes are such green leafy veggies, wearing a coat of armour that you can't easily beat. How messy and laborious could it be to trim and peel one single artichoke, taking into account the whole effort and time in the preparation for cooking this tagine.  I've always thought that the first person who ever created that one laborious artichoke tagine, had to be either very brave or very silly, but the result is so very worth it.

I love all your tagines, they look like the ones I tasted in Essaouira in Morocco. Recently, I bought a tagine, one of the expensive Le Creuset, and I used a diffuser under it as I was recommended, but still had liquid spitting all over my stove. I have a question for you, do you sell tagines? or do you know where can I get a proper one? I appreciate your feedback. I e-mailed you already, please let me know if you have any suggestions. Thanks.

A fantastic tajine! incredibly scrumptious looking. J'adorerais me procurer un plat à tajine traditionnel car ici ils coûtent trop cher et ne sont pas si beaux...

Bises et bonne fin de semaine,

Rosa

Quel beau tajine! Magnifique, c'est le meilleur tajine Marocain. Le mélange d'artichauts et petits pois est excellent et avec les épices utlisées, il est divinement parfumé! Ayant déjà eu l'occasion de goûter au tajine tunisien et algérien, je dirais sans aucune hésitation que les MAROCAINS sont les ROIS des tajines. Bravo!
