Whether used in a marinade or as a delicious topping on a finished dish, yogurt is a staple item in many Middle Eastern recipes. It’s a great way to kick up the flavor of various meats and has the added benefit of being a natural meat tenderizer. When you’re cooking up something spicy, yogurt can also add a nice cooling element to help you control the heat.
A really versatile and appetizing dish that we love to use yogurt in is the traditional Moroccan stew called a tagine. In the list below we’ve rounded up a few mouth-watering tagine recipes.
