The trend in Moroccan fashion and home furnishings has extended to the dinner table. Moroccan cooking is largely defined by its use of complex, aromatic spices like cumin, turmeric, saffron and cinnamon. These colorful spices are often added to dishes early in the cooking process, so they have time to blend and develop into deeply complex flavors.
This Vegetable Moroccan Couscous Salad is no different. Seasoned with saffron, turmeric and cayenne, and tossed with sweet, roasted vegetables, along with a tangy mustard vinaigrette, it delivers a gorgeous flavor profile that is at once savory, spicy and sweet. It’s also an excellent way to get a major dose of whole grains and vegetables.
