Chickpea and Carrot Tagine

Chickpea and Carrot Tagine 1

Slow cooker weather is back (and better than ever). It’s starting to get chilly in the DC metro area, so I decided it was a perfect time to make my first Chickpea and Carrot Tagine of the season. This recipe is a go-to of mine when my refrigerator is bare. Relying on frozen and canned produce, this Chickpea and Carrot Tagine uses pantry staples and requires little prep work. After 10 minutes of prep and 6 to 8 hours of hands-off cooking, you have a filling, veggie-rich meal ready for packing in your weekday lunches!
