Moroccans consider seven to be a lucky number. This I never knew! I gained this recipe when I traveled through Africa one long hot summer. I gained a journal full of recipes and a case of sceptaecemia as a bonus gift!

Wow what a winner. Served this up at a Moroccann dinner party for my friend who is a vegetarian. Unfortunately she didn't get a chance for seconds as everyone else wastucking into it. I followed the recipe totally and next time would probably substitue the turnips for something else. I personally wasn't keen on their taste. But everything esle very fragrant, tangy and yummy
