Eid mubarak! Ramadan has officially ended in many countries, and Muslims worldwide are celebrating the occasion with a major Islamic holiday known as Eid Al-Fitr. Morocco will observe Eid on Monday.
To help mark the occasion, many families do, of course, prepare a special meal. My list of Recipes for Special Occasions and Entertaining will give you some ideas when planning your own holiday meal. The Chicken Bastilla in the photo above is one example of what may be served in some Moroccan homes, but not all memorable food requires similar effort. If your own holiday kitchen time is limited, try one of these easy, yet impressive main dishes:
- Sweet and Spicy Tagines
- Saffron Chicken
- Chicken with Preserved Lemon and Olives
- Lamb or Beef Brochettes
- Baked Fish Tagine
