I’m excited to share a wide variety of slow-cooked meals from my fellow food bloggers’ kitchens, as well as my own.
Christine’s table at Chew Nibble Nosh comes this Moroccan meat stew with exotically seasoned spices, flavored with dried figs, paprika and Garam Masala. Serve with couscous or rice, and you’ll have a full meal that the whole family will enjoy. Sure the spices have a mixture of Moroccan and Indian, but the flavors will translate well.

Traditionally, chicken in a
shwarma sandwich is spit out roasted and shaved to fill a sandwich. I have neither the saliva nor the patience to roast and shave it slowly, hence my slow cooker chicken Shwarma recipe.
While this is not authentically Moroccan, shwarma is found in many street snack shops. When made in the slow cooker it is delicious and will not make you sweat all day taking care of the grill. Serve with hot pita bread, Arabic garlic mayonnaise, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and other mezze-style sauces.
A versatile, somewhat spicy sauce found in many Moroccan homes is harissa and adds the perfect amount of heat to Eat Good 4 Life’s Harissa Moroccan chicken dish. Another great clay pot recipe served over rice, couscous or quinoa!
