Try The World Marrakesh

Well Dined | Moroccan Stew with Couscous

Earlier this week I talked about my Marrakesh box from Try The World, and what I did with the sardines from it.  Now I'd like to tell you what I did with the rest of the items, which was to make this beautiful lamb and couscous dish!

First I took cubed lamb and tossed it with some of the kefta rub, then browned it in batches.

Spiced Cauliflower “Couscous”

You guys, I am in love... with a recipe.  A recipe for cauliflower that is pretending to be cous cous and filled with herbs, spices, buttery cashews, and plump golden raisins.  It's so good it's stupid.  And easy, did I mention easy?  And low-carb and healthy and gluten-free and vegan and all the things.

I am desperately trying to move away from grains and starches, but it is so hard when my brain had been programmed to think that dinner is meat, starch, vegetable (in that order in terms of importance).  So anything like this that I can find that satisfies my need to have a starch, without really being one, is awesome.  Oh yeah, and my husband LOVED it.

I served it as a side to some store-bought kebabs because of the distinctly Middle Eastern flavors.  But I'm wondering if I can use the same technique and change up the flavorings (a la this post) to do some different things.  Speaking of flavorings, this recipe uses a spice blend called za'atar that is super yummy.  You should be able to find some in the spice section of your store, but if not here are two recipes to make your own.
