Slow Cooker Chicken Marrakesh

Rating: 4.19 stars
I have been making this Moroccan-style recipe for years. It's so easy to make, it has become a tradition in our household.

Lamb Tagine

Rating: 4.69 stars
When I made this dish I left the kitchen window open. The smell attracted several male neighbors, and when my husband came in, he said that it smelled so good, he hoped it was coming from our house and not from someone else's! Serve with my Moroccan Couscous and Cucumber Raita on this site.

Marrakesh Vegetable Curry

Rating: 4.58 stars
A vegetable-full curry! Serve this curry over your favorite rice and you're sure to have a tasty meal. If you have carrot-ginger juice available to you, try using it in place of the orange juice - either one is delicious!

Chicken Tagine

Rating: 4.22 stars
This Moroccan slow cooker dish is the perfect blend of sweetness and spice.

Moroccan Potato Bean Soup

Rating: 4.55 stars
A delicious, creamy soup and enjoyed anytime. The soup is medium spicy. If you favor a less spicy soup, reduce the amount of peppers used. Vegetable stock may be used instead of water.

Moroccan Lamb Kabobs

Rating: 4.36 stars
A magnificent sweet and spicy lamb recipe. You can increase cayenne and other spices to suit individual tastes. Serve in warm pita bread with mixed greens (try using some strongly flavored ones) and fresh herbs. Drizzle with a lemon and herb yogurt sauce or a tzatziki sauce.

Moroccan Tagine

Rating: 4.08 stars
Tagines are Moroccan slow-cooked meat, fruit and vegetable dishes which are almost invariably made with mutton. Using lamb cuts down the cooking time, but if you can find good hogget (older than lamb, younger than mutton, commonly labeled 'baking legs' and sold cheaply) that will do very well.

Ras el Hanout

Rating: 4.76 stars
This spice mix is often called for in many Moroccan dishes.

Make-Ahead Vegetarian Moroccan Stew

Rating: 4.59 stars
This delicious, healthy North African-inspired stew is a family favorite, served with warm bread or even over couscous. You can make the entire stew ahead of time, let it cool, and refrigerate it for up to 3 days or freeze it for several months. You can also chop the veggies and mix the spices ahead of time, freeze them, and assemble it with the canned ingredients the day you wish to cook it for a wonderful exotic meal in just 30 minutes.

Spanish Moroccan Fish

Rating: 4.41 stars

Moroccan Lentil Soup

Rating: 4.38 stars
Thick, delicious and nutritious, especially in the winter!

Best Falafel

Rating: 5 stars

Sure, you can make falafel from a mix but frankly, it's a far cry from authentic falafel. This is the best falafel recipe I know of. You can find dried fava beans in Middle Eastern grocery stores and some supermarkets. Serve with pita bread, tahini sauce, lettuce, and other chopped vegetables.
