Lamb is a wonderful thing. (And lamb tagine is delicious.) If you can get past the phycological issues of eating a baby-something. It’s got a unique flavour and it’s very easy to digest, as far as meat goes.
Lamb Tagine Kid-Friendly…
Kid-friendly lamb tagine? Yup. It’s is a wonderful way to introduce kids to lamb. It’s sweet, a bit spicy, and YUMMY. I love this version because it utilizes nourishing bone broth (check out my awesome bone broth recipe here) — something we should all consume more of. And around here we serve it on quinoa (instead of couscous) OR (much to my son’s dismay) sometimes eat it with Cauliflower Couscous (recipe to come).
As always…when it comes to meat…there is a better way to do it… My kids LOVE grass-fed meat (especially lamb), because that’s really what they’re use to. But the reason we do is because that’s what animals like lamb are SUPPOSED to eat.
Explore your area – the farms surrounding where you live. Talk to the farmers. Get to know vendors at the Farmer’s Markets. Source your animal protein from a happy place as often as you can. Have conversations with your children about using the entire animal. Because it’s important!!
