A Moroccan Lunch.
I made two beautiful Moroccan salads for myself today to enjoy on my backyard patio. The one in front is called 'zalouk' which is a cooked eggplant salad with onions, garlic, tomatoes and green peppers flavored with cumin and paprika. The one in back is called 'khizou harra' which is a cooked carrot salad that is flavored with cumin, paprika, lemon, olive oil and cilantro. The zalouk recipe is from 'Olive Trees and Honey' cookbook (one of my absolute favorites!).
Such vibrant color! This carrot salad recipe is from a book called "Food of Morocco".
Served with warm whole wheat bread and a little bit of cauliflower bean dip that I made last week. Gotta have some protein!
