Couscous is a well-known seed worldwide, wheat semolina seed. The difference of Morocco with respect to this, is on how it is prepared, since here many vegetables are added, because the more vegetables you have, the better. In addition, enough lamb meat is added to completely change its flavor.

Among the cheapest prices on meals is this one, which is incredible, because the flavor is exquisite. It is prepared in different ways, be it with legumes, chicken or lamb meat.
With lamb meat
This is the most famous and is accompanied by some legumes. This also has almonds and plums, because a meal in Morocco is not from here if it does not have a taste between salty and sweet. Also, to add a touch of taste, cinnamon or saffron is added as a dressing.

Many people know it as flatbread. It is a typical ideal complement to eat with stews, soups and creams. In fact, its flat shape has to do with its being a companion to stews, since this allows the bread to flood its layers and absorb it easily.
What else should identify the delicacy of the dish if not its name? And it is that really every meal in Morocco is special and makes it clear that this country is rich in flavors.
Moroccan soup is also known as ” harira “. It is made especially with lamb meat, and we know that anything that has lamb meat is delicious.
