Moroccan recipes - 10 recipes

I've been in love with tangines ever since I travelled to Morocco in the Spring of 2013. Among camel rides, nights in the sand watching the stars, and trips through the Medinas, I spent much of my time eating! Many Morrocan recipes are hearty, filling, and surprisingly feel like comfort food (maybe it's because of the slightly stew-like resemblance). The cous-cous, carrots, and various meats really hit the spot! Served along-side some Moroccan mint tea, these dishes will fill you right up!
