Thank you DK (@ Chef In You) for giving me this opportunity to guest-host A.W.E.D. It is always interesting to learn about other food cultures and it is so amazing to see the similarities between them. Moroccan cuisine to me is something very exotic with lots of colorful vegetables and spicy flavors. And all of you have sent in such delicious dishes that I was drooling just looking at the pics. Thank you all for taking time and participating. So let's see what was cooked for A.W.E.D-Morocco... Shall we!!
Nutritious Moroccan Appetizers - Soups & Salads:
DK @ Chef In You sent this nutritious Moroccan Harira Soup. I can probably have this soup everyday in winter.
Meenakshi @ Ponderings of a Product Manager Mom sent in her version of Moroccan Harira that she makes in the pressure cooker; fast, convenient & nutritious.
Priya @ Priya's Easy n Tasty Recipes sent in 3 appetizers: Moroccan Shorba that is simple enough to make and is packed with flavor.
She also sent in Harira-a Traditional Moroccan Soup.
Her final appetizer is this simply delicious Sweet Carrot Salad. My carrot loving son will be very happy when I make this.
Lastly here's my Moroccan Soup that actually started of being a salad and ended up a soup. But I promise it was yummy and we licked our bowls clean.
Update: Curry Leaf sent in this Carrot Macharmal - Moroccan Spiced Carrot that looks absolutely delicious.
Yummy Moroccan Entrees:
Indhu @ Thayirsaadham sent in this protein packed Moroccan Red Lentil & Bean Stew. This dish will fill you up and warm you out on a chilly winter night.
