Zesty, and aromatic, this spice blend provides all of the quintessential Moroccan flavours you need to make your own tagine, rice dish, or marinade. Try your hand at traditional dishes or ease these Moroccan elements into things like burgers, roasted chicken, or roasted vegetables.
Create a marinade for chicken skewers by mixing this spice blend with yogurt. Or blend it with olive oil and drizzle over potatoes, butternut squash, eggplant, or other vegetables before roasting. It’s also great on roast lamb or chicken or mixed into vegetarian stews. Of course, you can also use it to make a tagine! Rub your meat or chicken (or vegetables) with this spice blend and slow cook them to perfection, allowing them to absorb all of those fragrant flavours, and serve alongside couscous.
The most famous Moroccan dish in the world has a history that dates back to the ninth century when tagine was first mentioned in Arabian Nights. The word “tagine” can apply to the dish itself or the beautiful pottery used to cook it. While the spice blend for tagine can vary by region, the dish traditionally consists of slow-cooked lamb or chicken with a range of accompaniments like vegetables, couscous, almonds, dried fruits, potatoes, eggs, or Moroccan country bread known as kobz maghribi.
