Posted for the Zaar World Tour 2006-Morocco. From the "International Vegetarian" cookbook. I have not tried this recipe yet, but it sounds like a nice, light dessert. This dish can be served as either a dessert or a first-course salad. Orange flower water can be purchased at gourmet grocery stores or liquor stores. Note: prep time includes refrigeration time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Peel oranges, removing white membrane completely with a knife; cut between membranes and lift out orange segments. Arrange each cut-up orange on a dessert plate so that segments resemble petals of a flower.
  2. Sprinkle each serving with 1/4 teaspoon of the orange water, then cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
  3. To serve, uncover, sprinkle each serving with 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon and 1 teaspoon powdered sugar. Spoon 1/4 cup yogurt into the center.

I love orange flower water so I had to try this! Made with just navel oranges and since I had an impatient toddler at my feet while I was preparing it, it wasn't done quite so pretty! After naptime though, she sure did gobble it up! Made for ZWT 9.

What a refreshing and yummy way to eat an orange. As I only but plain non fat yogurt (the very thick kind) I added a small bit of orange water and honey to it. Think I might make up a tub of the yogurt just to have on hand. I loved this as an afternoon break with a small Moroccan size glass of cinnamon orange tea. I bought a bag of oranges today, what a good thing. :D

What a refreshing snack or light dessert! I made only one orange's worth of this because I was the only one home. I used plain nonfat Greek yogurt sweetened with a little honey in place of the orange yogurt (didn't have any). Loved the cinnamon on this, too! Thanks for posting :)! Made for The Queens of Quisine for ZWT6 NA*ME
