These nutrient-dense Moroccan tagines are loaded with anti-viral, anti-inflammatory, immune-boosting herbs and spices. Tagine dishes are slow-cooked outrageously savory stew, typically made with meat, chicken or fish together with a variety of vegetables, spices, dried fruits and nuts. I love these dishes for their delightful harmony of flavors, color and textures.
