The mouth watering smell coming from the grill could be detected even if you’re blocks away. It’s one of those things that makes you want to eat even if you were full. What I like about this though is that it’s so easy to make, yet so tasty..& couples very well with lamb & veal meats. I usually would marinate the meat & freeze it. The marinade soaks in & it’s ready any time. Just grab, thaw, give it to your man to grill it, watch it sizzle & eat it immediately. No measurements for this ( I eyeball it): chopped onion, cumin, salt, paprika, olive oil, coriander & parsley (chopped). Add the meat in & mix. Let it soak in at least 30 minutes, before grilling it.

Enjoy!

Vive le khobz Marocain!

Doesn’t it deserve a cheer? lol

Khobz is the Arabic word for bread. The first two letters “kh” are pronounced the same way the Spanish would pronounce the name: José

Morocco is where people consume lots of bread, bread is always on the table dear friends & readers. I guess because it goes well with tajines, stews, soups, & even with a spoonful of jam & butter. What’s staggering though is that most women (when I say most I mean all women, lol) make their bread at home, sometimes daily! superwomen, huh?. So it comes fresh & tasty. I personally wouldn’t complain. A Moroccan motto that is worth mentioning here is: The best meals are not in restaurants, but are made at home. Anyway, I was thinking of what my next post should be & thought you might enjoy this. Making this bread may sound difficult if you compare it to baking a loaf of bread (because that need a longer period of time to rise). This flat bread doesn’t take as long, don’t worry. You won’t have to engage yourself the whole day to bake it.

OK I know some of you are going to say: are you kidding me? This looks like salsa to me, besides salads are much advanced these days to just have two veggies in it & still call it salad. Well, I know that but I have to tell you that this is a Moroccan smart salad. First, because it’s wearing the Moroccan flag’s colors; red & green which is very patriotic of this famous salad ;). (Forgiveness is highly expected from you when it comes to one of those silly ramblings of mine.(Blush). Yeah, I was saying it’s a smart salad. First, because it comes in many versions for different seasons: (either fresh & that means raw veggies, roasted veggies or roasted & then cooked) & each one of them is different in flavor even if they almost have the same ingredients. And sorry to tell you that you’re not lucky enough to see all versions today. I made this one a while ago & now it’s ready to show up!. Anyway, what makes it very famous in my Morocco is because it’s easy, cheap, & very yummy. Really sometimes I wonder how you could get something so tasty & refreshing out of such a short list of ingredients! I don’t want to forget to mention that a plus with this one is that even kids can make it!

You’ll need Tomato + green pepper + minced garlic + coriander/parsley ( better chopped) + salt + cumin + olive oil. Mix together & taste. What I do is just mix all & add garlic, cumin or salt if needed or until it tastes perfect! Oh by the way, mom used to add a jalapeño to this sometimes. (I can’t tolerate it)!
