One of my favourite things about an iPhone is the ease of accessing recipes through the various food apps. I have so many food apps, most of which I actually use. I think this topic will require a separate post but in the mean time, one of my most frequented food apps is the BBC Good Food app.
This dish is one that could be cooked in a tagine or if not a normal casserole.
