Moroccan Chicken & Moroccan Sweet Potato Salad were just two dishes created, with some guidance from Alice Waters, in The Art of Simple Food, and Lemonade LA, in The Lemonade Cookbook. I’m on a bit of a Moroccan food kick right now (if you can’t tell). Moroccan cuisine incorporates lots of spices, meat, and fresh vegetables & fruits, and often times these components are all in one dish! It’s influenced by a number of different ethnic groups, including Arabs, Berbers, Moors, & the French, giving it a rich history and a lot of variety. Recipes, photos, & more, after the jump.

These were inspired by Dorie Greenspan’s Honey-Almond Fig Tart, featured in her James Beard award-winning book, “Baking From My Home To Yours”.

This recipe is gluten and refined-sugar free. And, did I mention that they are absolutely delicious? I love eating these for breakfast and/or as a snack. Slice one in half, add some almond butter, and you’re good to go!
