Cumin, cinnamon, mint, and lemon: these are the flavors we most strongly associate with Moroccan cuisine. When you start thinking of these spices in terms of nutty pilafs and rich tagines, a Moroccan-themed dinner party practically writes itself. • Cooked Wild Greens Salad from Saveur - Cumin and lemon transform this dish of simple steamed greens. • Moroccan Baby Carrot Salad from 101 Cookbooks - A classic sweet-savory side dish. • Squash and Chickpea Moroccan Stew from Smitten Kitchen - With slivered almonds, preserved lemons, and green olives, oh my! • Lamb Tagine with Prunes and Cinnamon from Gourmet - Slow-cooked until the meat practically melts into the sauce. • Shrimp and Vegetable Tagine with Preserved Lemon from Food & Wine - Ginger and sweet paprika give this dish a kick. • Yogurt Cake from Epicurious - A simple dessert is just the ticket after such a rich meal. • Almond Pastries in Honey Syrup from Leite's Culinaria - Then again, you can't go wrong with sweet and crunchy.
