South African Beef Curry
When Nancy Sephton lived in South Africa in the '50s, lamb curry was as ubiquitous there as hamburgers and hot dogs are in the United States. On a return visit a number of years later, she came across the curry made with beef, which has become a favorite with her family.
Toasted Farro and Scallions with Cauliflower and Egg
This dish is inspired by a Moroccan porridge called herbel, which Mourad Lahlou's mother and grandmother used to cook for him. It's traditionally made with barley, milk, butter and cinnamon, but Lahlou likes doing it his own way, substituting other grains such as farro instead of barley.
Moroccan-Style Lamb and Chickpeas
Moroccan-Style Lamb and Chickpeas is a great go-to choice for fast and flavorful weeknight cooking. Serve over a simple Couscous-Arugula Salad.
Quick Preserved Lemons
Preserving lemons typically takes 4 to 6 weeks to acquire the right consistency and flavor. However, this quick method bypasses the lengthy preservation time and is a great substitute for the real thing. Use the rind to accent a variety of dishes, from seafood to vegetable stir-fries.
Beef Tagine with Butternut Squash
Take your basic beef stew to the next level by making this simple, fragrant beef tagine featuring butternut squash.
Moroccan Chickpea Chili
Inspired by spices of North Africa, this hearty meatless chili recipe proves that flavorful food can also be fast.
Sea Bass Crusted with Moroccan Spices
The coast of the southern Mediterranean yields a rich bounty of fish that's prepared in numerous ways. One constant in Morocco, however, is the use of chermoula, a combination marinade and spice rub. It typically contains an acid-based marinade (we used lemon juice) and a spice rub made from black pepper, cumin, coriander, and paprika.
Fava beans are traditional in this stew, which we updated with edamame. You can also substitute green peas for the edamame, if you like. Scoop up the thick stew with Teff Injera Bread or pita. Halve the portion if you'd like to serve this as a hearty side dish.
