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!

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 Fish Soup by John Spottiswood

This is a flavorful, spicy soup that happens to be Moroccan but will remind you of fish soups found from Spain to Russia. It is a classic! Serves 4 as a main dish, 6 as an appetizer.

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…

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…

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Moroccan Lentil Soup by RecipeKing

Moroccan Lentil Soup-is a delicious and easy to prepare recipe for a spicy vegetable soup. This recipe requires a (5 to 6 quart) slow cooker. It would be great if you could prepare this a day ahead and refrigerate until the next day. This will allow all the seasonings to meld together. It gets better with time as the complex…

Moroccan Hareera (Harira)

Moroccan Hareera (Harira) by Amos Miller

I have read and respect the many recipes for this famous soup that have been posted on CookEatShare. However, I have not found a true recipe, as I experienced the dish, so I thought I should add the one I enjoyed several times a week, year 'round for nearly a decade. Commonly, and mistakenly, thought of as only a soup consumed to…

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…
