I’ll never forget the first time my mom made chicken tagine. I can’t remember what I was doing beforehand, but all of a sudden I was hit with these unbelievable aromas. I practically floated into the kitchen like I was in a Disney cartoon. Since then, I’ve always had a soft spot for Moroccan food.
Luckily for all of us, Anna was able to spend some time in Morocco with her family a while ago. She brought back some great recipes along with the beautiful tagines that you see in the photos. (remember planes?) So out of our shared love of Moroccan food, we decided it was time to revisit Morocco with a slightly different twist.
Chicken Tagine A richly flavoured slow braised Moroccan chicken dish named after the iconic conical cookware in which it’s traditionally made. This classic recipe is rich and aromatic with a touch of curry flavouring without the heat.
We can omit the olives (or as one of our lovely regulars calls them, “devil orbs”), so just make a note on your order if they’re not your cup of tea.
Herbed Yogurt A yogurt drizzle with fresh mint, parsley, olive oil, and a touch of lemon.
Ptitim (Israeli cous-cous) If you’re familiar with regular cous-cous this large grained alternative might look a little different, but it also might have you never looking back. There’s a number of different ways to make ptitim, but we make ours using the risotto method, which gives you unmatched texture and creaminess. It’s a must.
Moroccan Tomato Salad If you’ve ever been to an event we’ve catered or got to try our Moroccan street food box, then you’re familiar with this salad. It’s full of flavour and freshness that is unmatched. Even after I’ve eaten the salad, the leftover juice stays in my fridge so I can pour it on just about everything I eat until it's gone.
Moroccan Mint Chocolate Parfait Mint tea holds a lot of significance in Morocco, which is why we like to include it on our Moroccan menus. This time, we’ve put together a little parfait with a rich dark chocolate pudding, crumbled mint chocolate wafers, and a creamy mint chocolate mousse.
Chickpea Tagine (Vegetarian Alternative) This vegetarian dish is so good that it has travelled with me to the majority of restaurants I’ve been at over the last decade. Large chunks of sweet potato, carrots, red peppers, chickpeas, and shredded kale are slowly stewed in tomatoes with fragrant spices.
As usual, we can do a half-vegetarian, half-meat box so everyone gets fed. Just include a note with your preference at checkout.
