I had this at a potluck and it was drop-dead delicious! A great balance of sweet and spice! I know there are lots of Moroccan Chicken recipes here on 'Zaar, but this one seems a little different to the rest. There are quite a few ingredients, but it is actually very simple to do. Prep time includes marinating time.
This is a recipe from the Moosewood Restaurant. The March 2005 issue of Organic Style features a Taste Test for Organic and Natural Frozen Ethnic Meals. This Stew was the Best Moroccan Entree out of 45 varieties they taste tested.
Like Zaar needs another hummus recipe.......But-this is different cause it's made from butterbeans (Lima beans) instead of the usual chickpeas. Found the recipe on the net a while back and have made it many times since then. Thought I'd share it.
These succulent crab cakes and the accompanying cilantro dressing are adapted from Matthew Kenney's Mediterranean Cooking (Chronicle Books). The Cilantro-Orange Dressing makes about One Cup. The dressing can be refrigerated for up to 4 hours. Let return to room temperature before serving.
Moroccan-style chicken which can be served on a bed of steamed couscous or rice. The chicken is garnished with paprika and parsley, with a tahini sauce mixed with a blend of herbs on the side. Made from sesame seeds, tahini is an excellent source of both calcium and protein. This recipe is from an International Masters '1001 recipes for pan or wok' recipe card, and has been posted for the 2005 Zaar World Tour. Don't be daunted by the seemingly long list of ingredients: most are herbs and spices! You can vary the proportions of the herbs - parsley, mint and coriander - to suit your taste preferences, as long as you have 3 tablespoons in total. The preparation and cooking times do not include the 30 minutes needed for marinating the chicken.
Did you know that for the ancient Egyptians, beans were seen as a symbol of reincarnation and that they represented the rebirth of spring each year? I found this fabulous recipe for a Moroccan broad bean dip in the first edition - September 2005 - of the new Australian magazine 'Notebook: ideas for living'. It was part of an article on peas and beans. The 'cooking time' specified below does not include the 20 minutes cooling time in the refrigerator, necessary for allowing the flavours to blend. When I made this, I used frozen broad beans, thawed; they were baby beans so they didn't need peeling; and I used cumin because I haven't yet tracked down any ras el hanout. I also used 4 cloves of garlic - which is what I've included here in the ingredients; the original recipe had 1 clove of garlic.
Connoisseurs who taste this seductive dessert of meringue and chocolate ganache will be reminded of a French dacquoise. Yet in Morocco this unforgettable flourless, butterless cake bears the intriguing name of Le Russe, "the Russian." Look for superfine sugar in the baking section of supermarkets, or simply make it by grinding granulated sugar in a food processor.
