  • 1 csoupe olive oil
  • 1 onion

Meanwhile, peel and chop the onion into thin strips. Wash the pepper, remove the stalk, seed, remove the white parts and cut into cubes.

When the chicken is almost golden, add the onions, pepper and cumin,

Mix well and let it scorch, stirring regularly to keep from burning.

Meanwhile, prepare all the remaining vegetables: cut the green zucchini into 1 cm slices, the yellow zucchini into 1.5 cm slices (it is longer to cook than the green), break the tail of the asparagus and cut the Stems in sections about 1cm long, keeping the heads whole.

When the onions are browned (but not burned!), Add the tomato dish, then fill it half full with water and pour into the frying pan. Also add the harissa and honey, mix thoroughly then add all the vegetables.

Add rinsed and drained chickpeas

Taste and add a cube of chicken broth (partly or wholly) if it is not salty enough, or simply salt.

Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to simmer for about 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, chop parsley, mint and cilantro. Very little mint, otherwise it would take power over the flavors of the dish!

When cooked, add 3/4 of the herbs to the dish, reserving just enough to decorate the plates.

Mix.

Saffron rice with winter vegetables

Saffron rice with winter vegetables

Saffron rice

INGREDIENTS

1 cup peeled butternut squash, chopped into 2″ (3-4 cm.) cubes

1 cup scrubbed, not peeled sweet potato chopped into 2″ (3-4 cm.) cubes

1/4 cup olive oil

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves or 3 sprigs fresh thyme

1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves or 3 large fresh leaves

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4-1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

4 garlic cloves, not peeled

1/2 teaspoon saffron threads

1/4 cup boiling water

1 cup Basmati or other long-grain rice

2 additional tablespoons olive oil

1/2 medium onion, chopped

1 additional teaspoon salt

1 3/4 additional cups hot water

DIRECTIONS

Turn the oven to 350° F (180° C).

Put the saffron into a small glass bowl and add 1/4 cup boiling water. Stir, cover and set aside.

Pour 1/4 cup olive oil into a medium bowl. Add thyme, sage, 1/2 teaspoon salt and black pepper. Stir.

Add the chopped vegetables and mix gently to cover them with the herbed oil. Remove the vegetables to a baking sheet, reserving any extra oil in the bowl.

Stir the garlic cloves into this extra oil and set the bowl aside.

Bake the squash and sweet potatoes for 15 minutes.

At 15 minutes baking time, turn the vegetables over and add the garlic cloves. Bake everything another 15 minutes.

While the vegetables finish baking, rinse and drain the rice.

While the rice drains, gently fry the chopped onion in 2 tablespoons of olive oil until the onion wilts – 3-5 minutes.

Add the rice and salt, stirring gently until the rice glistens. Add the saffron water (don’t lose a single thread!) and the additional hot water. Stir and bring to a boil.

Lower the heat and cook, uncovered, over medium heat until holes appear on the surface of the rice and the water has evaporated. Now add half the roasted vegetables, stirring them in gently – and quickly, so as not to lose the steam. Turn the heat off.

Cover the pot with a clean kitchen towel and clamp its cover over it. Let the rice and vegetables sit and steam away for 20-30 minutes in a warm place.

Fresh Peppers
Maggi or knorr cubes (2)
5 cups of sliced ugu (fluted pumpkin)
3 tablespoons of Ground crayfish
Salt to taste
Vegetable oil (10cl)

The image below is a combination of sliced fresh tomato/pepperonions in a plate and sliced fluted pumpkin in another plate. I use some of this while making yam sauce. It would be nice to deep fry the fish after removing the center bone.

making tomato sauce

How To Make Sauce With Vegetables For Yam

Set your cooking pot on the burner, allow to dry then pour in about 15cl of vegetable oil, this would be enough for frying the fish and also for the main cooking. Allow the oil to heat for at least one minute before frying the fish for about three to five minutes, turn frequently to avoid burning, pick out the fish and set aside.

Transfer the sliced tomatoes/peppers/onions into the pot containing the oil and fry also for about five to ten minutes while stirring occasionally to avoid burning. Fry the tomatoes/peppers until it looses its sour taste due to frying.

We are almost done with making vegetable-tomato sauce for yam.

North-African Spiced Chicken with Spring Vegetables

Makes 4 Servings
 ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 medium onion, sliced (about 100gm)
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1 1/2 tablespoons grated lemon peel (from about 2 lemons)
1 1/2 tablespoons ras al hanout
4 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
4 tablespoons chopped fresh mint

2 lbs boneless, skinless chicken thighs, trimmed
about 3 cups fat free, reduced sodium chicken broth
3 medium-sized fresh artichokes*
1 large fresh fennel bulb
4 small carrots(about 7oz)

1/4 lb green olives, sliced in half

Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a dutch oven. When hot, add the onions and cook for about 8 minutes, until softened and lightly browned. Add the garlic, lemon zest, ras al hanout, and 3 tablespoons each of the parsley and mint (save the rest for garnishing.) Cook, stirring, 1 minute more. Transfer the mixture to a large bowl.

Add 1/2 tablespoon olive oil to the pan. Season the chicken thighs with salt and pepper. Add 4 of them to the pan and cook for about 4 minutes per side, until lightly browned. Transfer to the bowl with the onion mixture. Cook remaining chicken thighs in the same way, with remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive oil, and transfer to bowl.

Add chicken broth to the dutch oven, increase heat, and scrape with a wooden spoon to loosen all of the browned bits. Return chicken and onion mixture to pan. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat. Simmer for about 20 minutes while you prepare the remaining vegetables.

To prepare the artichokes, first set out a bowl of water and squeeze lemon juice into it. Working with one artichoke at a time, trim the base to 1/2 an inch. Peel off all of the tough, darker green leaves to expose the more tender, lighter leaves inside. Trim about 1 inch from the top. Halve the artichoke lengthwise, and scoop out the hairy choke and discard. Cut in each half in half lengthwise again, and transfer to the bowl of water.

Trim the fennel bulb. Cut in quarters and slice the core away, then thinly slice the fennel. Peel the carrots and dice them.

Note: To prepare this dish ahead of time, follow the recipe through to this point, simmering your chicken until cooked through. You can chop all of the vegetables too, just make sure to leave the cut artichokes in a bowl of water with some lemon juice in the refrigerator. Let the dutch oven cool down and transfer to the refrigerator. When you are ready to serve, place the dutch oven back on the stove top, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and continue with adding the vegetables and simmering.

Add the vegetables to the dutch oven. Cook, covered, about 10 minutes. Add the olives and continue cooking for another 10 minutes or so. The artichokes should be tender and the fennel will still be slightly crisp.

Serve garnished with the reserved mint and parsley.

* A note about the artichokes: Make sure you really remove all of the dark outer leaves. If they are cooked in the dish, they will remain tough, although the center heart will still be tender and tasty so you can just pick the them away. If you can find baby artichokes, they would be perfect in this meal. They lack the whole inner choke, so they are much quicker to prepare, and more tender. And if you don’t want to deal with fresh artichokes at all, canned artichoke hearts would be perfectly acceptable too.
