What to serve with Moroccan Lamb Tagine


Couscous is the most popular choice of accompaniment, but flatbreads are always good to mop up some of the lovely sauce.

We would always recommend some cooked rice or some mashed potatoes, but, as the dish already includes sweet potato, some may consider that to be a bit carb-o-rama.

Whatever you serve this dish with, there’s no denying that this lamb tagine slow cooker recipe is hearty, easy and will set your Easter Sunday up for a truly delicious meal!
