• Liver with olives

    Cooking time: 10 min. / 15 min.Difficulty: easy

    I was invited for a dinner by my Moroccan friends for. While we were drinking and waiting for the "main chef", we became pretty hungry. So one of the guys said "lets make a starter" meanwhile. I was expecting something fast, small and light, but he made liver :) Yes, it was fast and it was delicious. But pretty filling too, so I had nearly no space for the main dish then :)

  • Beef tajine with green peas

    Cooking time: 15 min. / 1 hod. 10 min.Difficulty: easy

    This tajine I learned on a traditional Moroccan market in a restaurant made of clothes where they cooked various kinds of tajines not only for shoppers but for vendors as well. Vendors could even cook their own using the kitchen. It was quite fun as I asked for tajine with green peas, so I had to shell them myself. I had to buy the meat too, as there was not meat on the market. The butcher saw a white girl, so he sold me some low quality beef, which I was told buy two local guests who I invited for the lunch as soon as they put the first piece of the meat to their mouths. Next time I have to be more careful.

  • Authentic Moroccan couscous with beef and vegetables

    Cooking time: 25 min. / 2 hod.Difficulty: easy

    In our fast moving world it is quite hard to imagine preparing real couscous as they do in North Africa. The real one takes a few hours to prepare. Couscous in Morocco is a festive dish served on Friday. One of the reasons for long preparation is a slow cooked meat (usually beef or lamb). The second, most important one is slow moisturising of dry couscous by hands and then slow steaming above meat and vegetables in a special pot called couscoussier. Thanks to this slow process the couscous is well done, filled with smell of meat and vegetables and nicely loose.

  • Amlou - almonds and argan oil spread

    Cooking time: 10 min. / 10 min.Difficulty: easy

    Fresh pieces of bread dipped into amlou were fore sure my favourite breakfast in Morocco. If you are a peanut butter lover, you will love amlou too. It is smooth and nicely sweet, made of ground almonds, argan oil and honey. Traditional recipe is quite runny compared to peanut butter. As they do not spread it on bread, they dip the bread into amlou.

    Another tajine recipe. More precisely a dish prepared in traditional Moroccan pot, tajine. As there are so many possibilities what can be inside. This recipe I learned in my favourite small restaurant on one of the most beautiful beaches in Morocco, Lagzira.

  • Moroccan style omelette

    Cooking time: 10 min. / 15 min.Difficulty: easy

    Moroccan omelette, that is something. When you are eating it, you have a feeling it is pretty light. It is probably thanks to the tomatoes added. This omelette I learnt from one girl in a village in Atlas mountains. The eggs were from their hens. So yummy. Moroccan omelette is very tasty everywhere I tried it, but at this place was even more special.

  • Fish kefta - Moroccan fish balls

    Cooking time: 30 min. / 10 min.Difficulty: easy

    For this delicacy, I didn`t hesitate to travel to 5 km distant village. Sardine kefta was my favourite. Grilled straight on the street, mashed with a knife and stuffed into a fresh, still warm bread. With chopped onion and chilli sauce, irresistible combination. And price? 4 dirhams! :) (year 2016)

  • Vegetarian tagine berber style

    Cooking time: 10 min. / 30 min.Difficulty: easy

    Morocco is not a paradise for vegetarians. So vegetarian tagine doesn`t belong to typical Moroccan dishes. But this doesn`t mean they do not exist at all. I was so lucky I bumped into a place they made it and it was a traditional berber style.
