    The directions for this recipe call for apricots and tomatoes, but doesn’t list either item in the ingredients necessary for the dish. How much of each? Should the apricots be fresh or dried? Tomatoes—-canned or fresh, whole of diced? As it is written, the recipe is incomplete.

    Judya, I see both ingredients in the list.
    How can you make this if you don’t have a tagine?

    Imergoot, you should be able to make this in a dutch oven, at least that’s what I’m about to do.
    The directions include using turmeric, but the ingredient list doesn’t include turmeric, so how much should I use?

  4. Garbanzo beans are in recipe for Pesach… This might work for Sephardi, but not so much for Ashkenazi… Substitute?

    • This recipe is not for Passover as you said unless you are Sephardi, but you could try and make it without the beans. I can’t think of anything to substitute other than maybe some Cauliflower or potatoes.
