Morocco Food

The traditional cuisine of Morocco has been enhanced by the Berber clans of the mountains with their couscous and tajines, the Arabs from Persia who touched base in the seventh century bringing flavors, the Moors on their arrival from Andalucia after the Christians pushed them out bringing olive oil and citrus natural products, and all the more as of late, the French.

An amazing 22% of the land in Morocco is cultivated (astonishing considering the mountains and desert present), growing olives, almonds, citrus, grapes, dates, beats, vegetables, sugar beet, sugar stick, cotton, and oilseeds.

Meats produced are predominantly lamb and chicken, while the long Mediterranean and Atlantic coastlines produce a variety of fish. You are far-fetched obviously to discover pork here!

Despite the fact that vegetables are generally accessible, vegan suppers may be hard to discover, especially far from the visitor zone.

The nation is just about independent in food production with seasonal climate varieties causing deficiencies in certain years.

Tajines

Harira

This is a thick stock or soup containing sheep or chicken, lentils, chickpeas, tomatoes onions, and herbs. Harira is generally eaten at night during Ramadan, to break the quick.
