There are so many delicious recipes for the holidays I am having a fun time picking out some of my favorites for you to consider cooking for the holidays. Most everyone knows how to make a turkey or ham, so I am going to focus on hearty main or side dishes and desserts. I am going to start with a Hearty Moroccan Stew that brings beautiful flavors together of quinoa (lentils or couscous), chickpeas and spices…a hearty dish for a starter or main dish…it is delicious!
Moroccan cuisine is typically a mix of Arabic, Andalusian (Spanish) and Mediterranean cuisines with a slight European and Subsaharan influence. Because of these influences, this dish is so versatile you can add meat making a Moroccan Beef Stew, Vegetable Tagine Stew, Lentil Stew…you can be creative. I have offered some variations and suggestions of alternatives based on your tastes!
