Ras el hanout is a North African spice blend that’s exotically aromatic—perfect tossed with roasted butternut squash, draped in yogurt and studded with pomegranate and cilantro.
On days where time is in short supply or you need a last minute meal, this is your saving grace. Grilled chicken gets marinated in lime and serrano chilies AFTER cooking—yeah, you read it right—and served with a cooling cilantro-lime sauce for truly fast summer fare.
This salad is a perfect juxtaposition of flavors. There’s a certain balance from the ultra fresh, harmonious herbs and cucumber against the rare beef that is so satisfying. It’s almost Zen-like… almost.
