Fall Vegetable Chickpea Tagine

If you're getting to the point of rosemary overload and sage saturation, it's time to take the produce of Fall to a different part of the world.  How about Northern Africa?

Tagine actually refers to the clay pot that is used to cook this traditional Moroccan dish.  You can use a metal pot to copy this flavorful stew.  Tagine spices like paprika, turmeric, coriander, cumin, cinnamon, and cayenne reflect Morocco's location -- a historic trading convergence between Spain, northern Africa, and the Middle East.  Use any of your favorite fall veggies and serve over rice or whole wheat couscous.
