    Another recipe from the kitchen of Momma Simo. This is my best guess from watching her make it. I have since tried this at home with measuring and this is pretty darn close. There is one optional ingredient which while not terribly authentic works really well in this dish.

    Recipe #240509

    Roasted carrots are a favorite snack or side dish that I enjoy several times a week. This particular rendition came about after thinking about the wonderful Moroccan carrot salads posted on the site. Not only are these delicious, they are

    Recipe #234670

    During my recent visit to Morocco, I enjoyed this Berber flatbread on several occasions and even watched my host make a loaf for me on one occasion. Her version had no butter in it and more water and I wish I'd been more careful about writing down her process. This recipe comes from the web and is attributed to "The Great Book of Couscous" by Copeland Marks. I am making this untried recipe public in hopes that someone with better knowledge of the cuisine can offer feedback.

    Recipe #232808

    During a recent trip, I stayed in Fes with the family of a local friend. His mother spoke no English and I spoke no Arabic but our common language was cooking and we spent many hours in the kitchen together. One afternoon, she made this for me and it was just amazing. While cumin is as commonly used in Moroccan homes as salt and pepper in the US, the stellar ingredient in this simple recipe is the use of a good quality olive oil. The amounts stated here are approximates as Momma Simo never used a measuring device and eyed everything.

    Recipe #232059

    My love of eggs - for breakfast, lunch or dinner - is no secret. So when I came across this one I knew it was a likely winner. Have not tried it yet but posting it with the original ingredients. I will most likely reduce the calorie count in my own rendition.

    Recipe #232060

    I love new twists on classic dishes. In this one, quinoa - a Latin American grain rich in protein - replaces bulgar as the base of this Mediterranean-Middle Eastern salad.

    Recipe #140618

    Inspired by the flavors of North Africa, this vegetarian stew replaces the tagine with the crock pot. The combination of saffron, ginger and cinnamon give of a wonderful aroma and flavor. It would tempting to substitute canned chickpeas here but you will get a different result. In this dish the chickpeas while tender have greater firmness than the canned type. Time saving tip: Prepare the ingredients the night before, placing the cubed squash, carrots, onions, tomato paste, garlic and ginger in one sealable bag or covered container, the lentils and dried spices in another. In the morning add the contents of both bags/containers, the soaked chickpeas and broth to your crock pot, turn it on and go.

    Recipe #217244

    Another delectable entry for the Zaar World Tour from the enticing World Vegetarian Cookbook by Madhur Jaffrey. This is simple enough to prepare midweek and comforting as the first cold air of fall arrives.

    Recipe #140836

    As a low-fat chef I am always looking for desserts which are interesting and flavorful without lots of butter. :) Here tart apples are candied in a syrup scented with cinnamon and orange blossom water, two flavors typical of North African cuisine. I have not tried this one but it looks scrumptious. (T'fah is the Arabic word for apple.)

    Recipe #220644

    I found this recipe on a Weight Watchers related website and knew I had to try it. The only non Core ingredient are 4 tablespoons of currants which spread over the entire dish are just 2 points or 1/2 point per serving. For Flex this is 7 points per serving.

    Recipe #220089

    When I first found this recipe on the Weight Watchers website, I was amused by the idea of a Moroccan dish featuring pork as most of the natives I know from this country are Muslim. Though I will never serve this dish to them, I love the flavors of the marinade and have made some changes that make this truly delicious.

    Recipe #134050

    A light refreshing salad that works equally well as a starter or dessert. This is easy peasy to make and has a wonderful combination of flavors. If you like your fruit salads extra saucy, just increase the sugar and water to 1/3 cup. If you can't find blood oranges, use additional common oranges instead.

    Recipe #216582

    Another addition inspired by one of my favorite cookbooks. The couscous in this is so fragant and flavorful, it is well worth making it alone. Together, they make a wonderful midweek meal in just 30 minutes. (Consider it a very quick trip to Morocco.) Not quite a one dish meal, it is just as simple given the couscous requires no actual cooking.

    Recipe #191897

    Kibbeh is a traditional Lebanese dish typically made of ground lamb, bulgar, pinenuts and spices. Prerpared in trays orindividual servings, kibbeh balls, it is baked or fried. In this remake lean ground turkey replaces lamb and zucchini helps keep the mix moist. I have not tried this yet but plan to soon. For those on WW Core, the pine nuts are 5 points for 1/4 cup or 1 pont per serving.

    Recipe #194017

    Peppers grown in abundance throughout the Mediterranean. This salad from Tunisia and Morroco uses them to their best advantage with roasting - a preparation that heightens their natural sweetness. You can serve this as a first course salad or the centerpiece of a lunch or light dinner.

    Recipe #140847

    As someone who eats chicken breasts at least once or twice a week, I'm always looking for new recipes to inspire me. I recently found this one on the pages of Eating Well and was excited by the proposition of a dish that promised lots of flavor without a long marinating time. Serve this with some couscous and a Moroccan salad and enjoy. (WW 4pts/Core)

    Recipe #189474

    A variation on a Molly Katzen recipe I found on the Internet. Though the spices are quite different, the basic ingredients -- tomatoes, lentils and chickpeas -- remind me of the popular Moroccan soup called harrira. Have not yet tried this one but as fall comes, this will certainly make an appearance in my soup pot.

    Recipe #187850

    As a big fan of yogurt based marinades for chicken (for example Chicken Tikka), this one immediately caught my eye. Unlike Tikka, you only marinate this one for 30-45 minutes so it doesn't require much planning ahead. I have not tried this one yet but wanted to make it public for the Zaar World Tour. Cooking time include time to marinate the chicken.

    Recipe #138110

    I love falafel but rarely eat it given that most kinds are fried. Just found this on the Internet and it looks like a wonderful option.

    Recipe #138111

    The Zaar World Tour has me searching high and low for new recipes from all corners of the globe. This is an untried recipe by the simplicity and unusual inclusion of yogurt as a sauce for the beans appeals to me.
