This is more of the lifestyle side of this blog. I wanted to share an item that I absolutely love. This is not a sponsored post, I was not gifted this item from Le Creuset. This was something I said I really wanted while shopping with my mom and she happened to get it for me for Christmas a few years back.
This is the Tajine and it is Amazing.
I cook with this at least once a week. It is so easy (especially with me not having a ton of time to actually go all Betty Crocker in the kitchen). All you do is put what ever you want to cook in here with some water, put the top on and let it cook on low.
Basically the way it works is it heats up the water, then the water circles back down and goes back up. This is how the food is cooked – I don’t know the scientific explanation or wording that they told me in the store – all I know is that it works, and cooks amazing food.
My go to dish for this is chicken. I throw some chicken, carrots, celery, and onions in here with some water – season – cook on low for about 45 min and it’s almost like homemade chicken broth. I usually pair this with a side of rice and mix the rice and veggies together with some of the broth like water mixed in the rice as well.
Quick and Easy dinners! Plus I think it looks pretty interesting. We sometimes leave it out on our stove (we have a cupboard space issue) and it works as a pretty good conversation piece.
