THIS is the recipe that shocked me!! In any normal flipping through a magazine or cookbook, I would have passed the recipe by without a second thought. BUT, I LOVED IT!!! Serve this with the Spicy Tomato Sauce that is also in this cookbook. Just a wonderful appetizer. A bit lengthy....yet worth the oooohhs and aaahhhhs!!! **NOTE: Rolls can be assembled (but not coated or cut) 1 day ahead and chilled, covered. They can also be assembled and cut (but not coated or baked) 2 weeks ahead and frozen, wrapped well in plastic wrap. Cut frozen rolls, then bake (do not thaw) in a preheated 350ºF oven for about 20 min.
This is a derivation of a recipe called Eggplant Marrakech from "Sundays at Moosewood Restaurant". The original recipe called for Berbere (a spice mix), vermicelli, cooked brown rice and cooked chickpeas. I didn't have any of that, so I substituted masalas, jasmine rice, baby Bella mushrooms and uncooked lentils. It turned out well -- spicy and delicious. It is definitely not a low-salt dish, though! You can substitute mixed spices for the masalas if you wish. Enjoy!
Not something you would find on a real Moroccan menu. I love pork belly and I love Moroccan spices so I decided to combine the two and the results were delicious! To save time I didn't make the Ras el Hanout this time - I had some that I bought (Moroccan Spice Melange by Moustaffa - a wonderful blend) - you can do as well for cheaper by blending and grinding your own.
If you like it spicy, this is a great marinade for chicken, lamb or beef steaks. This marinade recipe makes enough for 2lb of meat, chicken or beef. Marinate red meat or poultry for 2 hours at room temp or 24-48 hours in the fridge.
This recipe was featured in "Bon Appétit", January 2005 issue.
*Ras El Hanout is a Moroccan style curry blend. Roughly translated, it means "top of the shop," and ,as such, it contains a great assortment of flavors. (adapted slightly)
This is a comfort soup when your stomach doesn't want to feel better. My mother-in-law gave me this recipe for my husband.
When seasoning this soup, you do not want the broth to become cloudy from the seasonings. I use salt and a little garlic.
As a bonus, you could use red meat instead of the chicken. I even use turkey for this recipe.
This is taken from "The Great American Favorite Brand Name Cookbook: Collectors Edition." I haven't tried any of these recipes, but I'm borrowing the book and trying to get as many posted for my personal use as possible. Hope you all enjoy!
