This week, let’s go back to the basics of traditional Moroccan cuisine with a Harira soup recipe. Harira is the national soup in Morocco. And it is a must in Ramadan – the month where muslims around the world fast during daylight. In fact, during that month, every Moroccan household or restaurant has that special smell of fresh herbs. Harira is usually served with dates, dried figs or even small honey pastries.
Have you ever waken up in the morning, craving for a crumble? Some of you, maybe, but for the most of us I guess no. Neither have I so far. I was among these people who like a cup of coffee in the morning! But feeding a food blog can challenge our usual ways...
Following effort, everyone wants a moment of comfort… The recipe I am suggesting today is one of these healthy and nourishing ones – like stewed beans, lentils, etc. – we enjoy after a busy day or intensive work. This kind of meals, especially when they involve simple preparation and ingredients, I feel like I never know enough of them...
Baking is a pleasure in this gloomy weather. These last days, I have tried many muffin recipes at home, going from sweet to salted ones. I was looking for a light gluten-free recipe with a Moroccan twist of course… I have found some fresh mint in my neighborhood market and I decided to use it in my cake recipe…something we never do in Morocco even if we drink lots of mint tea with or without cakes and sweets.
Yesterday, you might have spent time carving a terrifying face into your Halloween pumpkin. If you were, like I was, completely focused on that task, you might have postponed the cooking of the pumpkin “waste”. There are many options to cook pumpkin; I really like it in a soup slightly spiced with a pinch of nutmeg. But today, I wanted to find out the very particular taste of this sweet Moroccan salad.
