Moroccan Tagine with Couscous

November 10, 2011

A few days ago, I was food shopping and on a small adventure in the vegetables section. One of the people that work there came over to me and told me I should try the buttercup squash they currently had in the store. He said the flavor and color is even better than the butternut squash. So of course I had to buy one. It stood in the refrigerator for a few days until I found this recipe to use it in. It was DELICIOUS!  So rich in taste; sweet and satisfying. A perfect dish for the fall or winter season. Serve with couscous, nom nom….

This recipe is inspired by http://allrecipes.com/recipe/moroccan-tagine/detail.aspx

  • 1 buttercup squash, peeled and chopped

  • 1 cup vegetable broth (make your out of bouillon and water)
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

Preparation:
