Hello Friday and Hello Tajine!!
This Friday, was a dusty one, it was windy and cloudy! And a good day to stay home, drink some hot chocolate, while little peanut runs around, telling me all kind of stories, while I nod and laugh and pretend that I know exactly what he is talking about! Moments like these, make this time of my life magnificently awesome! It is the season of tiny things and a laughing baby and a house that never seems to be truly quiet. A season of a baby turning into a toddler. A season of me teaching small tiny things, to a small tiny person, and learning from everything he is! A season of tiny pajamas and the tiniest socks! A season that makes me feel sad, happy and bittersweet! A season, I know will end soon and I am not sure how ready I am for that, yet a new one will begin and I know I will be in love with it too, and it will be my favorite then, just like this one is my favorite now! I sip my hot chocolate and try to be present! Be here. I take a second and I try to capture it all! The smiles, the cries, the running around, and the little kisses coming my way every time he passes by!
It is also the season of good food and yummy dishes, today’s dish is Moroccan and vegetarian. Here, I will share my way of making it. As all my other recipes, this one is easy, quick and of course super delicious!
All you need is:
1 tbsp of olive oil
1 cup of water
1 onion (cut into small cubes)
2 potatoes (cut into cubes)
1 carrot (cut into pieces)
1 tomato (cut into small pieces)
½ tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ginger powder
Parsley and coriander (few leaves each)
Heat up the pot, pour the oil and add the onion and the spices, let the onions sweat, then add the tomato, stir, and add the water. Add the carrots and potatoes and let them cook over a low heat. When the vegetables are cooked add the parsley and coriander, then the olives, stir for 3 minutes and Voila!!
Of course you can have your Tajine with chicken or meat, just add it with the onion and give it some time to cook before you add the vegetables!
