Although Moroccan cuisine is absolutely delicious and delightful, most people (who aren’t Moroccan, that is) don’t have a lot of experience cooking it or even eating it. But that’s such a shame. We really suggest you try the following three Moroccan recipes at home. You’ll be happy you did.


Tagine is a traditional Moroccan stew. It’s usually made with spiced meat (typically beef, lamb, or goat), but you can also make it vegetarian. Either way, potatoes and green olives are common additions. This dish uses a lot of spices like paprika, cinnamon, ginger, and coriander, so you won’t be short on flavor.


Moroccan’s carby side dish of choice is couscous, which are tiny steamed balls of crushed semolina. It can be eaten on its own or turned into a heartier, more substantial dish with the addition of vegetables.


Soup is a Moroccan classic, and this one is a staple in the cuisine. It’s a tomato-based soup with lentils and chickpeas, meaning that it’s very vegan-friendly but still has tons of protein. It can also include rice or noodles if you want some extra carbs because why not?
