  • cook’s illustrated harira (moroccan lentil & chickpea soup)
    This soup is an improved, more complex version of the Moroccan chickpea stew we've been making for years. After the mise en place is done, the execution of the recipe is rather easy. The orzo in this soup gives it a lovely body and texture. ground coriandersmoked paprikaground cuminground cinnamonred pepper flakesolive oilonioncelerygarlicgingercilantroparsleychicken brothwaterchickpeasbrown lentilscrushed tomatoesorzoSwiss chardlemon juicecilantroparsleysaltpepperlemon wedgesharissa

  • matt's braised chicken with preserved lemons and olives
    We love any opportunity to use preserved lemons in a dish. This recipe came from my old coworker Matt. We’ll often cook this up for guests because it’s relatively easy to make, and it’s impressive enough to serve to company. All of the proportions can be adjusted to taste and availability. Leftovers keep really well and taste even better the next day. basmati riceturmericpaprikacayenne peppercoriander seedsblack peppercinnamonras el hanoutchicken thighsyellow oniongarlicgingerwhite winechicken stocksaffronolivespreserved lemonsolive oilgreek yogurtcilantro
