Lemon Cardamom Moroccan Meatballs

Amy 5 comments

I’ve real­ly been crav­ing some fla­vor­ful fresh Moroc­can and Mediter­ranean cui­sine, and it was about time I’d made these divine Lemon Car­damom Moroc­can Meat­balls.  I sim­ply swapped out the bread­crumbs from the orig­i­nal recipe for some LSA mix that’s huge­ly pop­u­lar with the health food­ies here in Aus­tralia. It’s a mix of ground Lin­seed, Sun­flower Seeds, and Almonds. It’s loaded with nutri­ents and makes a great binder in cook­ing, or sub­sti­tute for flours in baked goods. And for all those back home in Read more […]

Muhammara - A Roasted Red Pepper and Walnut Dip found in Moroccan and other Arabic cuisines

Muhammara — Roasted Red Pepper Dip

Amy No Comments

One last Moroc­can (or rather, Ara­bic) recipe for you! Muham­mara is a deli­cious dip made of roast­ed red pep­pers, wal­nuts, and pome­gran­ate molasses typ­i­cal­ly made in Ara­bic cui­sine such as Turk­ish or Moroc­can. If you’re lucky you may have had the chance to try this tasty treat on a mezze plate. I like to think of it as the Moroc­can alter­na­tive to hom­mus. You can use it\ as a spread, a dip, or a condi­ment to just about any­thing! Of course tra­di­tion­al­ly, it’s served with pita or flat bread, but I like Read more […]

Moroccan Mint Tea

Con­tin­u­ing on our Moroc­can cui­sine car­pet ride, it’s time for some Mint Tea! 😉 I couldn’t believe the Moroc­can peo­ple were drink­ing and serv­ing mint tea in the dead of Sum­mer, but I under­stood as soon as I tast­ed it. I’m gen­er­al­ly not a big tea drinker giv­en my cof­fee obses­sion, but I absolute­ly love the con­trast of the cool­ing mint in this hot bev­er­age. In the Moroc­can cul­ture, it is a beau­ti­ful and hos­pitable ges­ture to offer some­one a fresh glass of mint tea. My favorite expe­ri­ence with Read more […]

Homemade Moroccan Chicken Bastilla

Chicken Bastilla–A Taste of Morocco

Amy No Comments

I’m final­ly get­ting around to writ­ing some more trav­el-inspired recipes! A few months ago I was blessed enough to expe­ri­ence the Mag­ic of Moroc­co. For four short days I was immersed in a sea of beau­ti­ful­ly bright col­ors, hand woven car­pets, expert sales­men, the pun­gent smell of tan­ner­ies pro­duc­ing leather, mint tea, and deli­cious, soul­ful, beau­ti­ful­ly craft­ed food. I am fas­ci­nat­ed by their entire cul­ture, and specif­i­cal­ly, there is some­thing so majes­tic to me about Moroc­can cui­sine.  It was a Read more […]

Hearty Moroccan Chicken Stew

Moroccan Chicken Stew

Amy No Comments

I am count­ing down the weeks until I am devour­ing authen­tic local Mediter­ranean food and col­lect­ing recipes from all of the coun­tries I will be vis­it­ing! But in the mean­time, I’m enjoy­ing deli­cious Mediter­ranean food right in my kitchen in South­ern Cal­i­for­nia, includ­ing this deli­cious Moroc­can Chick­en Stew. It has a sim­i­lar spice pro­file to my Chick­en Tagine, but I love the hearti­ness and vel­vety tex­ture added by the toma­to paste and chick­peas, turn­ing this into an entire­ly dif­fer­ent and equal­ly Read more […]
