Cook's Tips: Thinly slicing rather than pressing the garlic gives the dish a slightly mellower garlic flavor.

A tagine (tuh-JEEN) is a traditional Moroccan stew that is slow-cooked over low heat and typically served over couscous.

Chickpeas are often found in Moroccan cooking and provide protein for a satisfying main dish.
