Moroccan meatball tagine / Marokański tadżin z klopsikami.

morrocan tagine with schwartz perfect shake seasoning

As you probably know I’m a big fan of North African cuisine, one of the most comforting meals I had while in Morocco was definitely tagine, so when I was asked by Schwartz to develope a recipe with one of their product I was super excited! There’s nothing better than creating a new recipes it’s like letting your imagination run wild! Schwartz offered me a range of spices and I obviously choose a taste of Morocco – Perfect Shake Moroccan, blend of mild spices like roasted cumin, cinnamon and mint. It brings back lovely memories from Morocco! I’m quite busy during the week, so there is no chance that I can make my own spice blends every day, sometimes I have to rely on good quality ready made ones like Schwartz! If you fancy trying it out Perfect Shake spice blends are available in most supermarkets or directly on Schwartz website.

Jak pewnie już wiecie jestem wielką fanką kuchni Północnej Afryki, daniem które idealnie wpisuje się w definicję mojego “comfort food” jest zdecydowanie jednogarnkoy tagine, którego miałam okazję próbować na wakacjach w Maroku. Kiedy zostałam poproszona przez Schwartz do wykreowania dla Nich przepisu z użyciem ich produktu od razu się zgodziłam! Nie ma nic lepszego niż wymyślanie przepisów, to tak jakby puścić wodzę swojej wyobraźni i poeksperymentować z różnymi smakami. Miałam wybrać coś z dość szerokiej gamy produktów więc od razu postawiłam na smaki Maroka – Perfect Shake Moroccan, czyli łagodną mieszankę przypraw tj: prażony kmin, cynamon i mięta. Od razu powracają wakacyjne wspomienia! Podczas tygodnia w pracy jestem dość zajęta i nie zawsze znajduję czas na to by robić swoje własne mieszanki przypraw, dlatego zdarza mi się korzystać z dobrych jakościowo i sprawdzonych gotowych mieszanek taki jak np. Schwartz! Jeśli chcielibyście sami spróbować Perfect Shake możecie nabyć je w praktycznie każdym supermarkecie lub bezpośrednio na stronie internetowej Schwartz.

      Thanks Michelle! This is exactly what I love in this spice blend, it contains every single spice I would use for tagine but then I don’t have to buy all the packages which I probably won’t use as often as I should 🙂
