Prep tip: For quickest, most even cooking, use a wide-bottom pot. Serving tip: The tagine is delicious alone but is even better spooned over whole-wheat couscous.

Directions
  1. Heat a wide-bottom pan over medium heat. Add oil, then onions and ginger. Cook until onions begin to soften, about 3 minutes. Add cardamom, cinnamon, and cayenne. Stir and cook for about 30 seconds.
  2. Add carrots, chickpeas, and broth. Cover and simmer until carrots are almost tender, about 8 minutes. Add olives and prunes. Cover and simmer until carrots are fully tender, 8-10 minutes. If tagine is a bit dry, stir in a few extra tablespoons broth. Add salt to taste.
