    Chop the fresh cilantro and parsley.

    In a small bowl, mix together the ground cumin, coriander, turmeric, paprika, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, salt, and pepper to create a spice blend.

    Sautéing:

    Set your Instant Pot to “Sauté” mode and add olive oil.

    Once the oil is hot, add chopped onions and minced garlic.

    Sauté until the onions are translucent.

    Adding Spices:

    Add the spice blend to the sautéed onions and garlic.

    Stir well to coat the vegetables in the spices.

    Vegetables and Chickpeas:

    Add the diced carrots, potatoes, bell peppers, zucchini, eggplant, tomatoes, chickpeas, and raisins to the Instant Pot. Mix everything together.

    Deglazing:

    Pour in the vegetable broth to deglaze the pot, scraping up any bits stuck to the bottom.

    Pressure Cooking:

    Close the Instant Pot lid, set the valve to “Sealing,” and switch to “Pressure Cook” mode.

    Set the cooking time to 5 minutes.

    Natural Release:

    Once the cooking time is complete, allow the Instant Pot to naturally release pressure for 10 minutes.

    Then, carefully quick release any remaining pressure.

    Finishing Touches:

    Open the lid and stir in chopped cilantro and parsley.

    Adjust seasoning if necessary.

    Serving:

    Prepare couscous according to package instructions.

    Serve the Instant Pot Vegetable Tagine over a bed of couscous.
