Named after the traditional clay pot that it was originally cooked in, a tagine is a traditional fragrant North African stew. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our Moroccan-style shoulder of lamb dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be reheated more than once.
- Heat the oil in a large heavy-based saucepan and fry the onion for 5 minutes until softened. Then stir in the garlic, sweet potato, ginger, cumin and coriander and cook for a further 5 minutes. Pour over the chopped tomatoes, 200ml (7fl oz) of the stock and season well. Cover with a lid and simmer for 20 minutes, adding the lamb for the last 5 minutes.
- Meanwhile, place the couscous into a bowl and pour over the remaining hot vegetable stock. Cover with cling film and leave for 5 minutes before fluffing with a fork, seasoning and stirring through the lemon zest, juice and half the coriander. Spoon into shallow bowls and top with the lamb tagine. Scatter with the remaining coriander to serve.
