Vegetarian tagine with seitan

Here is a tagine filled with vegetables and vegetable proteins! Also a new way to cook seitan, an ingredient made from wheat or spelled gluten. Combined with chickpeas, potatoes and carrots, you will get a healthy and complete dish. Without forgetting the olives for the flavors and the almonds / pistachios for the crunch. We let you follow our step by step recipe and tell us what you think in the comments ;-)
