Hello everyone, hope you have a wonderful week so far and excited for the weekend coming up! πŸ€—

Today I made Moroccan Vegetables in Tagine which can preserve all the essence of veggies and full of flavors of all the spices and herbs.πŸ˜‹

Main ingredients:

Sweet potatoes, carrots, tomatoes, onions, shallots, olives, and dried apricots.

For Moroccan stew, main spices are cumin powder, coriander powder, cinnamon powder and paprika. You can add additional herbs like rosemary, basil, thyme to make the stew even more aromatic. 😁

Very quick all in one pot ingredients and let it simmer in low heat for a good 30 mins. Just sprinkle more diced apricots and cilantro 🌿on top as final dish and enjoy. This smelled amazing and came out delicious over a cup of tea. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

As always, be inspired, be joyful, take a picture and Enjoy it! πŸ˜‹β€οΈ

Awe thank you Byron2020 very much! πŸ€—πŸ™Hmm Winter Broth has a nice ring to it and I’m sure you enjoy it so much with cold weather over there. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘

This type of dish warms you up from the inside and I love sprinkling some chilly flakes directly to my bowl. 😁

Hope you a wonderful weekend ahead! 😊

This looks lovely, as always. I love Moroccan food πŸ˜‹

Awe thank you HungryHufflepuff very much! πŸ€—πŸ™ I forgot to soak red lentils overnight so I came up with this combo instead and it turned out fine too. πŸ˜πŸ‘

What other Moroccan dishes/treats you love? πŸ˜‹

Where I used to live , until 9 years ago, we had Moroccan friends who frequently invited us to their house, and of course there was always a lot of food. They always made amazing tagines and couscous, always multiple varieties of each, and the most delicious bread that they would make while we there so it was absolutely fresh. Unfortunately I can’t remember the name of it, but it’s the best bread I’ve ever eaten. It was a kind of flat bread,possible made with corn (maize) flour. And every meal was accompanied with the unique mint tea, which is as much about the pouring of it as the flavour itself. They were very generous people with their love, we almost were part of the family. I’m very sad we lost touch. It was only 9 years ago but they were moving to another house and we were moving to another country, and we’ve just somehow lost touch.

Oh yes those are so good. πŸ˜‹πŸ‘ Couscous is gluten so I can’t have now but It is so good. They do take their mint tea seriously and fresh mint leaves always used so refreshing and the tea is very concentrated. I’m sorry you lost touch and I understand your sadness. I moved country too and lost touch with many friends. Started with emailing but then slowly just faded away but that’s life.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend coming up! πŸ€—

Thank you πŸ€— I hope you have a wonderful weekend too.

I am going to add some Vegan double cream that will be laced with paprika - to give it a creamy, orangey colour 😁

Awe Debs you know we love seeing your food creations that filled with love and care in each details goodness for our mind and bodies. πŸ€—πŸ’šOh my those M&S Vegan truffles look so good. πŸ˜‹ I hope you enjoy each single bite out of them. πŸ˜πŸ‘ I haven’t had any truffles chocolate for awhile now as I usually got from Godiva but then diet changes so I haven’t had for some time now.

I have always been amazed by truffles as they are a form of fungi. Usually I get these black and white truffles by ounce from Trufflin as they are the most reliable source for their products from France and Italy. They have Pate which is for Vegan and Vegetarian also and we get them to have with our baguettes for breakfast or lunch. There’s a lot of products from truffles like cold pressed oil, hot sauce… and they are delicious. 😁

Whoops! maybe I should not have posted these up - you will be thinking about truffles now 😁 I must admit I have not had truffles for years but I will say these Vegan once - you can not tell the difference between them and normal ones (from what I can remember) It's amazing how things have changed for us πŸ˜‹

I do think about it and actually i just checked they have promotion for short time and ends on Monday. I’d say perfect timing that you mentioned to get some truffles. πŸ˜πŸ‘

We don’t have M&S here and I’ll look up for some vegan ones. I’m sure they have, just don’t know how well they make.

I’m so glad how delicious vegan treats are now from ice cream, chocolates to snacks… that we don’t have to miss anything. πŸ˜πŸ’š

GreatMindfulnessAdministrator in reply to Kitten-whiskers

Actually it’s not A, it’s B literally 😁. It’s like M&S but smaller. It takes 3-5 business as they said to ship out but that’s okay, they will be here. πŸ˜πŸ‘
