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!

Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style

Spicy Shrimp Moroccan Style by John Spottiswood

These prawns are absolutely fantastic. Every time I make them I marvel at the density and depth of the flavors. I typically leave the Cayenne pepper out of about half of them if I'm cooking for the whole family. I often serve these in combination with a Moroccan chicken, fish, or lamb dish, but they work fine on their own too.

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!

Moroccan Short Ribs

Moroccan Short Ribs by Nancy Miyasaki

This yummy short ribs recipe is full of delicious flavors and lots of colorful and tasty vegetables. It goes great over couscous or mashed potatoes. If serving with couscous, add slivered almonds and dried currents. That will add a nice sweetness and nuttiness to the dish.
