After somewhat long seasoning process, I finally had the chance to test out my beautiful new Le Souk tagine!
For the first meal, I tried out a recipe for Lentil Tagine Gazelle D’or, with a few added touches, like bay leaf and a little cumin and turmeric. I put the tagine in the over at 300F, and just let it go for about an hour. I checked on it, stirred the lentil mixture, and let it cook for a few more minutes, then removed the tagine from the oven and let it sit on the stove top for about 10 minutes. The results were WAY better than I expected:
Incredibly tasty and super easy to prepare! Now that the trial run with tagine cooking has proven to be a success, I am curious to see how the tagine will work for cooking things like stew and paella. Experiments await!
