Dinner From Around The Globe: Morocco

Over the weekend we had our second Global Dinner! It was pretty simple, but perfect for this time of year. The dish this time was from Morocco. We chose to make Morroccan harira & chicken soup .

But before we started dinner, we had to start with a glass of wine. No, it’s not Moroccan but it was still yummy all the same. It is actually Borjón, one of my favorite Amador wineries.

Prepping our foodskies!

All of these veggies we got at the Midtown Farmer’s Market. I love Sacramento for all of the farmer’s markets. Most of them are open rain or shine. It was all rain when we went this weekend!

Lots of spices for this dish. I think that is why I like Moroccan food so much. It is so flavorful. However, let me give you some advice: pay attention to tsp vs Tbsp. It is a huge difference. But I do have to say I think my little mistake helped our dish…lots of flavor!

This recipe only calls for 1/3 cup of lentils. I probably put in about 1/2 cup. And next time I make this dish I will put in even more. I am assuming the lentils weren’t the main attraction of this dish, but I definitely wanted more.

 We couldn’t find any Moroccan bread near by. The few Moroccan restaurants near us that I know of serve pita bread. I guess I need a bread maker so I can make my own next time. My bf went to Corti Bros. and got some yummy bread for us, not Moroccan but it went well. The recipe called for the bread to be served with humus and olive oil.

 Cheers to us on another yummy Global Dinner! I swear, once I get better at cooking I would LOVE to invite more friends and family over, dress nice and have a little dinner party. I think it would be a great way to show off our dinners! But for now my A’s shirt and no makeup will have to do.

Our next Global Dinner: Rwanda!
