Ingredient Graphic
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and finely chopped
  • ½ medium cauliflower, core removed and broken into florets
  • 1 tbsp Here Comes the Yum Spice Blend
  • 1 tbsp Moroccan Round the Clock Spice Blend
  • 5 large plum tomatoes, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1½ tsp sea salt
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
  • 1 tbsp fresh ginger, peeled and finely chopped
  • 8 cardamom pods, seeds removed and roughly ground in a mortar or 1/8 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1 cup red split lentils, soaked in water for 10 mins, then drained
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, roughly chopped

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large saute pan on a medium-high flame, then saute the onion for 9 mins, stirring frequently, until soft and caramelized.
  2. Add the cauliflower and Here Comes the Yum spice blend, stir for a minute, until aromatic, then add three of the chopped tomatoes, tomato paste and salt.
  3. Cook for three minutes, so the tomatoes start to break down, then stir in the Moroccan Round the Clock, garlic, ginger, and cardamom, and cook, stirring continuously for two minutes.
  4. Add the lentils, then pour in 2 cups of water and bring to a boil. Turn down the heat to medium, and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring every once in a while, until the lentils are nearly soft and most of the liquid has been absorbed.
  5. Add the remaining tomatoes and cook for five minutes more. Stir in the cilantro just before serving.

Honey Moroccan Spiced Ribs

moroccan round the clock

This is the second batch of ribs we smoked with a completely different flavor profile. The infusion of Moroccan flavors paired with the sweetness of the honey was so unique! I loved these ribs and the harissa dipping sauce added a little heat, which was subtle and tasty. Healthy On You® Moroccan Round the Clock spice blend went to work adding the bold flavors of coriander, mustard seed, cumin to brighten up the mix and make this smoked rib dinner memorable.
