All the posts on our recent trip to Morocco resulted in a craving for Moroccan food… Discovering a tube of instant harissa paste at the grocery a few days ago meant we had a “jumping off” point for a dinner with friends. We started with a citrus salad with olives, nuts and an argan oil dressing (recipe up soon). then we had a large platter of couscous, surrounded by a wonderful vegetable tagine that Mrs. MM made, aren’t the colors just incredible?
We also made a chicken with apricots and tomato tagine that turned out very, very nicely (recipe up soon as well)…
…and some tiny, rare lamb chops as the other choice of protein. Overall a nice meal that was reminiscent of Morocco, but perhaps not as heavily spiced as we would have experienced it on our recent trip… :)
