    This is great to use as your salad dressing, or as a salad topping with additional dressing. You can also serve this as a side dish, especially when tomatoes are plentiful in the summer months! If you prepare this during a "dry tomato season", plum tomatoes are a good substitute. This recipe came from Southern Living. Please note: Cooking time is marinating time!

    Recipe #366061

    Falafel have got to be the tastiest little fritters ever devised by a cook - and they're good for you too! The Taratoor Sauce also makes a great dipping sauce for crudites, so don't just make it for falafel. The chickpeas do need to soak for at least 12 hours, so take that into consideration. Otherwise, very easy.

    Recipe #72814

    My take on traditional moussaka. The beauty of this recipe (besides great taste) is it's ability to freeze (and defrost) so well, with no loss of flavour, making it ideal for OAMC (once a month cooking). Note: Greeks do not eat their food piping hot out of the oven - especially in the summer heat. Food is served just warm or at room temperature (but cooked that day - otherwise it is reheated to freshen it). Flavour is more pronounced at this temperature.

    Recipe #59130

    This is one of my family's favourite recipes; I am constantly asked all the time to make it. I was taught it by a Moroccan friend who also lives in France - it is an old family recipe passed down for many years. It is great all year around - served with flat breads or pitta breads & assorted salads in spring & summer or served with hot fluffy & fruity couscous, assorted chutneys or pickles in the depths of winter. I make mine in a fantastic "Electric Tagine" made by Tefal; it of course works in a more traditional clay tagine - BUT the real secret is.......it works like a dream in a Slow cooker/Crock Pot. Try it out! If you cannot get Ras-el-Hanout, which is an exotic Moroccan spice mixture, including rose petals - don't worry, use the other spices I have listed instead; or I have a Ras-el-Hanout recipe posted on Recipezaar: Recipe #205185 N.B. I notice in a review that it has been suggested that Chemical Heat is needed!! The great thing about sharing recipes is that they can be adapted to personal taste. BUT, this is not supposed to be a "Hot" recipe, but a "Fragrant & Fruity" recipe!! A Tagine by definition is SLOW cooked over a LOW heat & is very fruity with subtle undertones of heat! However, life would be boring if you couldn't add a bit of "heat", but it's just not traditional. What is traditional, is to allow your guests to add their own heat, so have a bowl of "Harissa" on the table. Preserved lemons are also a wonderful and traditional addition - I have a recipe posted on Recipezaar: Recipe #209590 PLEASE NOTE: This recipe lists canned chickpeas in the ingredients, NOT dried! If you use dried chickpeas, you MUST soak them and cook them first!

    Recipe #137530

    When I first posted this recipe, I hadn't made it, I had posted it for a tag game, but encouraged by the positive reviews it has received, I made it this weekend, and took it as a gift for my friend, who loves hot curries and dahls. Its a little hot for my personal taste, but she loved it! Easy and quick to make, it comes from the Very Easy Vegetarian Cookbook, by Simon & Alison Holst

    Recipe #328537

    Posted for ZWT6 NA/ME leg of tour.

    Recipe #424508

    This spice mix originates from the Middle East and is used to sprinkle over dips, deepfried vegetables and flat breads etc. From Modern Moroccan by Ghillie Basan

    Recipe #211959

    This is called salata cadas and made with lentils slightly cooked with olive oil, garlic, and spices. Clifford Wright made this as a meze at the Tikka Grill, a restaurant on the corniche of Alexandria in Egypt. Enjoy!

    Recipe #423176

    You'll love this exotic departure from the usual fried tomatoes! There is an incredible aroma that fills your kitchen the minute the tomato slices hit the pan! An excellent way to use not quite ripe tomatoes. These are great for breakfast, along with eggs, buttered tortillas, and perhaps Pueblo Style Calabacitas. Adapted from Mollie Katzen's Sunlight Cafe(Breakfast All Day).

    Recipe #404281

    I found this on foodbycountry.com. I'm posting it for ZWT 6. Morocco North Africa

    Recipe #423654

    I make this recipe all the time! Watch out, it's very spicy! :) And quite healthy, too. Eat the chana masala as a curry over rice or my favourite, straight with paratha. Every now and then I like to add about 1 tsp of plain yogurt on top of the chana masala in the bowl, and then add the cilantro on top of that. I adapted it from: http://www.recipedelights.com/recipes/vegdishes/ChanaMasala.htm

    Recipe #266068

    Tender chunks of beef simmered in a fragrant & fruity broth enriched with honey - a traditional Moroccan tagine at it's best! I cook mine in a traditional tagine & an electric tagine; but I realise that not everyone has one, so I have also tested this out in my crock pot; it works REALLY well and is better when cooking larger quantities. The meat becomes meltingly tender and the fruity & spicy smell transports you immediately to Morocco........on a magic carpet maybe?? Yes, I am waxing lyrical I know - but this tagine is a real winner. It's not particularly seasonal, but I do think that the colder autumn & winter months are a good time to indulge in this North African comfort dish!

    Recipe #191946

    Another easy eggplant recipe that I found in a local newspaper.

    Recipe #204217

    Nicer then the paste from a jar! Can also be completely baked on the barbecue, but be careful with the heat! The marinade can also be used for fish, large prawns or lobster, but leave out the chilli powder and halve the amount of garlic.

    A twist on a Middle East recipe with a splash of Afghan and Central Asia.

    Recipe #257813

    Great authentic basmati rice to be served with chicken tikka masala or chicken tandoori. Don't be intimidated by the spice mix, they blend very well. If you like indian food, you'll appreciate this dish.

    Use 1 Tbs per pound of meat, poultry or vegetables for a moroccan influence!

    Recipe #64936

    A delicious blend which truly captures the flavors of the islands. It is great on fish, chicken and also on fruit. Mix in oil for a curry paste or use as a dry rub. If you want it hotter, use more cayenne. We like it a little heavy on the cinnamon and cloves.
