This recipe is one of my favorite travel-inspired recipes I’ve made! Last summer BMW and I took a day trip to Tangier, Morocco from Spain. It was the first time for both of us to visit the African continent even if only the northern tip and just for a few hours! We decided to book a day tour with a company we found on Trip Advisor. Sometimes I am weary of these things and usually like to explore on my own but this one had great reviews and promised to take us to all the main attractions. Apparently, visiting Tangier for just one day is a thing. Fast forward past our sight seeing and spice shopping to our amazing lunch. Like one of my favorites. Have you ever had those meals that just surprised you at how delicious they were? The ones that you have really found memories of? Well, this is exactly how I felt about the first time I had chicken tagine in Morocco!
This is one of those recipes I’ve been keeping from y’all! It’s weird because usually I share my favorite ones right away! Since BMW and I work from home we typically make our lunch everyday. Usually something pretty quick but delicious and satisfying nonetheless! At least, when I look forward to lunch then I’m not as tempted to grab something quick or order takeout. Although that certainly does happen. If you’re trying to eat lean or looking for a quick weeknight dinner, then this is it! Less than 30 minutes, maybe even less than that!
I’ve been telling y’all how I am making an effort to cook more and recently I got together with a small group of friends and we made some delicious spring rolls! I love making spring rolls with friends because it’s simple and people can add whatever they want. Plus, it’s just a little bit interactive so people really feel like they are a part of the meal. This recipe though stemmed out of having a bunch of leftover ingredients from that dinner! I couldn’t let all those herbs and veggies go to waste and the perfect solution was to quickly whip up a vermicelli bowl for lunch one day. I thought you all might like this one too because you can easily make this ahead and have for lunch at work.
