Today I started of making Eazy Zucchini and wound up with this delicious curried zucchini instead. Never be afraid to get carried away in the kitchen!

Ingredients:

olive oil
1 leek, well washed and sliced into rounds
7 cloves garlic, chopped
1 thumbnail ginger, grated
2 zucchinis, chopped
1 green pepper, chopped
1 tomato, chopped
1 cup red lentils
1/2 bunch coriander (cilantro)
2 1/2 cups water
chili pepper, to taste
curry powder, to taste
salt
pepper

1 potato, peeled and chopped (optional)

Heat the olive oil in a pot with a tight cover. Sautee the leeks until soft and then add the garlic and ginger and sautee for one minute more. Add the remaining vegetables and sautee for 3 minutes until they are slightly soft. Add the remaining ingredients, close the pot and bring to a boil. Lower the flame and simmer for 20 minutes. Remove the lid and boil out any extra water so that you are left with a thick sauce.

Serve warm on a bed of basmati rice.

Serves 4-6

Enjoy!

While most Moroccan food is not sweet, this is one dish that is an exception to the rule. It is traditionally served after the Yom Kippur fast, perhaps to emphasize that the coming year should be a sweet one.

Super easy and quick, it takes about 15 minutes to prepare.

Ingredients:

1 bag instant whole wheat couscous
250 gr. fava beans-fresh or frozen (1/2 lb.)
1/2 black raisins
1/4 cup olive oil
salt
pepper
cumin
cinammon
sugar

Prepare the couscous according to the package. Salt and add oil and lemon

Soak the raisins in hot water for 10 minutes.

Cook the fava beans.

Serve the couscous, fava beans and raisins in three seperate bowls. Place on the table along with the sugar and spices. On the individual plates, combiine the three ingredients and sugar and spices.

Enjoy!
