Butternut Squash Tagine

BY : PUBLISHED : June 20th, 2012 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

I am always looking for meals that are very simple to cook and produce a ton of food- this recipe does just that! Feel free to play with the vegetables; it is quite hard to mess it up. I would recommend that everyone own a tagine pot. You can pick one up for under $20 at World Market.

  • 1 butternut squash, bite size pieces
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 6 medium red potatoes, bite size pieces
  • 1 Tablespoon of crushed fresh ginger
  • 1 cup of corn (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 large fresh tomatoes (chopped)
  • 4 bay leaves
  • 2 Tablespoons of garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon of coriander (seed)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric
  • 1 Tablespoon of cumin
  • 1 cup of chopped prunes (optional)
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth


  • Cut all vegetable into bite size pieces. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl. When well incorporated, transfer to a tagine. Bake at 400 for about 45-60 minutes
  • When the vegetables are at a texture you enjoy, add salt and pepper and serve.
  • If you do not have a tagine pot, an oven safe pot with a tight lid will work. You will need to add extra liquid, about 1 cup extra.
