Eat clean lamb tagine

Normally the recipes I experiment with focus on quickness as let’s face it no one wants to be slaving in the kitchen for hours. The only exception to this rule is when my slow cooker makes an appearance which on average is about once a week. Lamb tagine is a perfect one pot, slow cooker meal.
