Moroccan Harissa Spiked Chili for #SundaySupper

Morocca Harissa Spiked Chili #SundaySupper

When the temperatures begin to dip the first thing people reach for are soups and stews. But, by this time of winter the novelty of those hearty, warming foods has worn off. Where is spring, already?!? Here in Morocco, winter is nothing like the upper Midwest. Our day time temperatures rarely go below 60F, and […]

Moroccan Orange Salad

Salads in Morocco are a big deal. No matter what you will always find at least one, but usually several different small plates with salads served. Lately, I’ve been eating them simply as my meal.

Vegetarian Moroccan Harira

Vegetarian Harira

For Moroccans, harira soup is a Ramadan ritual.  Every evening families sit down to bowls of steaming harira – even when daytime summer temperatures soar about the 100F mark. I love soup, but the last thing I want to do is leave my stove on for hours during the hottest part of summer. Instead, I […]
