Grilling: Moroccan-Spiced Rack of Lamb

Grilling Joshua Bousel Post a comment

Inspired by the deep, rich, and balanced flavors of Moroccan dishes, this delicious grilled rack of lamb is rubbed with a complex spice mixture that includes paprika, cumin, and cayenne pepper, and then crusted in a bright and fresh pesto-like blend of fresh cilantro, parsley, olive oil, garlic, and lemon juice. They're flavors that can both stand up to and enhance the strong flavor of lamb. More

Dinner Tonight: Chicken and Rice With Almonds and Dried Cherries

Dinner Tonight Nick Kindelsperger 4 comments

Originally, this chicken and rice dish, with its mix of cinnamon and almonds, reminded me of Morocco, which isn't such a bad place to be. But then I realized that the spices are just as comfortable in India. In the end, I decided that as long it tasted good I would let the dish remain a bit ambiguous. More

Video: Moroccan Lamb Meatballs

Daniel Klein Post a comment

After our recent trip to Morocco, one ingredient that really stuck with me was cumin. I haven't always been a huge fan of the spice, but in Morocco it arrives un-toasted and in large quantities. I was shocked to see how much was used on the lamb meatballs served on the street. But as soon as I took a taste, I was converted. More

Eggplant and Tomato Sauce with Israeli Couscous

Serious Eats Yasmin Fahr 3 comments

Turmeric and some other spices used in this recipe are notably Moroccan, and, while in Morocco it's typical to serve the couscous alongside the stew or sauce, I chose to stir it all together to keep in line with this quick and easy dinners column—and it turned out great. The couscous had a chance to absorb the extra sauce and flavor. More

Moroccan-Style Spicy Carrot Dip

J. Kenji López-Alt 1 comment

I found a gorgeous bunch of baby spring carrots at the farmer's market the other morning while I was doing a bit of shopping for a cook-out that afternoon. My mind strayed to a trip to Morocco, where I'd eaten a crazy good dip made from carrots and aromatics. Spicy, sweet, and pungent, I wondered if the toasty, sweet flavor of the caramel-glazed carrots would work in the dish. More
