Cumin Rice

Cumin Rice by Joyce Leung

This rice is a delicious mix of cumin and cinnamon. It provides a nice, slightly sweet flavor, that is a perfect complement to any middle eastern dish. The only dishes I would avoid serving this with are sweet dishes with dates, figs, etc. I served it with my Braised Lamb with Beans. It was great!

Harira Soup

Harira Soup by John Spottiswood

This is the traditional soup served at sunset to break the daily fast observed during the 30 days of Ramadan. Recipes vary from family to family throughout Morocco and the rest of North Africa. I'm particularly fond of this version. If you have not had this before, you MUST try it. It is truly delicious!

Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings

Leg of Lamb with Moroccan Seasonings by John Spottiswood

This was a wonderful leg of lamb that I cooked for a Holiday gathering this year. I took a base recipe for Moroccan Roast Lamb from one of my favorite cookbooks - Recipes from Morocco by Sufo. I then added roast potatoes and created a gravy from the drippings. It couldn't have come out much better. Everyone raved about it. I used…

BASBOUSSA (SEMOLINA CAKE)

BASBOUSSA (SEMOLINA CAKE) by MARIA LOURDES V. LIPARDO-AYUB

This is my favourite Egyptian pastry. I tried many recipes but I finally found the best one. An Indonesian chef, who's working in the palace of a Prince in Riyadh, gave me an idea how to make it. I made this recipe and tried it. Excellent!!!

Chicken and Eggplant Tagine

Chicken and Eggplant Tagine by John Spottiswood

I was shopping for a chicken and eggplant stew and both the eggplant and the bell peppers were on sale...so I bought extra. We ended up making two different recipes that called for chicken and eggplant two nights in a row, so we were able to really compare. While we all loved the other recipe (chicken and eggplant stew..on this…

Moroccan Broiled Fish Skewers or Fillets

Moroccan Broiled Fish Skewers or Fillets by John Spottiswood

This is a tasty Moroccan dish that you are sure to love. Serve it over salad, cous cous, bulgar pilaf, or white or brown rice. We've used thick white fish but also thinner fish like catfish or tilapia when they are more reasonable. You can't skewer them, but you can broil the whole fillet (see picture). It also works with salmon…

Moroccan Bread

Moroccan Bread by Amos Miller

It is interesting to me that one of my grandfathers, a West Virginian who lived at the end of Horsemill Hollow, always referred to bread as 'the staff of life'. As anyone who has traveled to North Africa knows, bread is a special food, treated with the utmost respect and central to every meal. My Mountaineer gramps would have much…

Beer marinated pork chops

Beer marinated pork chops by Peter Brown

When selecting pork chops for this dish make sure they are evenly sliced so that they are all ready at the same time. The chops should also have a good circle of fat because this adds to the flavour. To extract the best flavour from the marinade it is best to soak the meat overnight in a covered dish in the refrigerator, otherwise…

Moroccan Split Pea Soup

Moroccan Split Pea Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a delicious and beautiful recipe I adapted from one in Paula Wolfert's beautiful book "the food of morocco". The split pea soup has wonderful Moroccan flavors, and it gets a beautiful touch when you drizzle homemade pepper oil on top. This is a super easy trick which adds a nice kick to the already flavorful soup. It's…

These kabobs are of Moroccan origin and are referred to as Pinchos in tapas lore. If you are not a huge fan of peanuts or onions, try this recipe. If you like peanuts and onions, you'll find our other moroccan chicken kabob recipe a bit more flavorful.
