Sausages with Mushroom, Onion and Dried Fruits

Sausages with Mushroom, Onion and Dried Fruits

This is the ubiquitous sausage, pepper and onion with a sweet exotic twist. There is no dearth of flavors here; the garlic cloves and the tomatoes roasts lavishly on high heat, the onion caramelizes, dash of crushed pepper adds the heat and the dried fruits mildly lend the sweet bites.

The cranberries, apricots, figs and the smoky cumin make this everyday dish so extraordinary; while sausages,  peppers, onions and the mushrooms are run of the mill, this spicy meat along with the sweet bites of fruits pushes it a little closer to the alluring Moroccan Tagine.
