One thing I think is so fun about meatless recipes is that they often make use of interesting ingredients or cooking methods from places around the world where cooking without meat is common. Don't be scared by the word tagine in this Moroccan Butternut Squash and Chickpea Tagine from Closet Cooking. The name does refer to a type of special Moroccan clay pot used for cooking stews, but Kevin has cooked this dish in a pan on the stove. And although there are a couple of uniquely Middle Eastern ingredients in this dish like preserved lemons and Harissa, this recipe sounds like it would have plenty of flavor without them.
